Subject What is the recommended way to store a Date field in Avro ?
Date Fri, 20 Nov 2015 21:43:29 GMT
I don't see a Date data type in the spec:
http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#schema_primitive

I've seen some old discussions in the ML and issues suggesting to serialize
it using the UNIX epoch in a long value.

However, how do we store events older than 1970 like birthdate ?
