What do the T and Z mean in this time code?


I know the date is on the left followed by the time in 24h format, but what do the letters T and Z stand for here?

What generated this date? The T marks where the time portion of the date starts. The Z stands for Zulu Time Zone (UTC).

Thanks for the answer! Nothing directly from FCC generated it, but I was working on the Twitch API challenge with the new helix API they rolled out and it is part of the JSON payload you get from it.

Actually, I just realized the FCC Twitch API clone generates this type of date too:
