This is part 2 of ?? in a series that goes behind the scenes of the PostcardApp.
The postcardsfromskyrim.net implementation of the postcardApp has been invaluable in getting down to the nuts and bolts of the new ASP.NET MVC 4 Beta and WebAPI. While in the midst of adding authentication and authorization to the app, I had an interesting discovery regarding Attribute Filters and how the WebAPI fits into MVC 4. I’ll go over the basic issue and provide a link to a gist example of how to create a custom authorization attribute to transparently authenticate users in both scenarios presented.
I've just put up a page with a technical listing and overview of the PostcardApp running at postcardsfromskyrim.net. I'll try to keep that page updated as I get more content up and running, so keep an eye on that page to see all the components at play in the system.
UPDATE: A basic help page is available here
Is a web application where users may create, view, and share custom postcards featuring images from fantastic virtual locales. The goal of this effort is simple: provide a reference for myself, potential clients, and other devlopers on how to develop, expand, and maintain a modern web application using the latest and greatest in technologies.

I’m pleased to announce the release yesterday of my latest project – Postcardsfromskyrim.net! This website is a project that I gave myself to both to sharpen my skills through practice, learn new techniques and technologies, and to serve as a guide to some new and exciting technologies and the possibilities they open up. I plan on doing in-depth dives on the various aspects of the application in subsequent posts, so stay tuned.
When I go on vacation to different places, I snap a lot of photos of scenery – mountains, rock formations, etc. When I got into playing Skyrim, I so enjoyed the landscape that the first few hours of the game saw more screenshots captured than monsters defeated!
