My guess is that's Europeean for 10/15/2015.

Yup the US folks do MM/DD/YYYY .. Europe is DD/MM/YYYY ... In work I always work with YYYY-MM-DD to avoid confusion

Is this for real? Who doesn't know the different dates' formats?!
It's even easier to know which is which with a date like that.
11/10/2015 would be harder though
Like HR said: yyyy-mm-dd for the win!

Yeah, YYYY-MM-DD is the best format. I've been having to get used to that format since we moved to SQL DB at work a while back. It's certainly easier to use than good old unix dates that we were using before.

Seriously, the US just needs to toe the line and get in sync with the rest of the planet. It's recalcitrant issues like this that bounces space probes off planets at ludicrous velocity ;-)

Yup indeed 15/10/2015 is the European date format; where they use the DD-MM-YYYY format, we use the MM-DD-YYYY format which in my opinion doesn't make as much more sense as the European format is an easier way to remember than our format although the YYYY-MM-DD format is a good date format to be using. The date format is kind of like the USA calling the sport football, 'soccer' and calling Deutschland, 'Germany'. It just doesn't make any sense and is kind of stupid.
