17:41 floop I have a question (which I'll ask in a moment) which is really more about selecting the proper HTTP method than it is about REST. Is there a more-relevant channel that anyone can recommend?
17:42 floop anyway... I have an endpoint which triggers a calculation to be triggered on the server. The calculation doesn't change any state on the server (so GET seems proper), but it's a potentially expensive operation (so I'd rather use POST).
17:43 floop can anyone point me to some best practices, or recommendations for methods to use for expensive non-mutating operations?
