Matt, Phil, and Mike chat about naming APIs - how does "english" grammar factor in to planning the structure of an API? Our discussion is coloured -- err, colored by our own experiences... what do you think?

Show Notes

  • Should endpoints be named after the action, like
    • /getThing
    • /updateThing
    • or after the resource with different HTTP verbs, like
    • GET /things
    • POST /things?
    • What are the reasons to go with one or the other?
  • Async operations with REST APIs - how do you do it?
    • long callbacks, short callbacks
    • polling
    • pubsub
  • What's the point of a Webhook?
  • "Working with Webhooks" Lorna Mitchell @ PHP Barcelona 2019 link
