Short Description
Husky card event registration web app
Full Description

Event Registration

Project to demonstrate an event registration application. The idea being, with this application and some minimal setup you can deploy to a device (desktop/laptop/Raspberry Pi/etc.) capable of running node.js and take attendance via card swipes (magstripe/rfid). Submitting a huskycard rfid/magstrip/netid looks up users regid and passes to PWS to get more user details, and adds users to a UW Group leaf. After collecting users a list of registered users in plain/verbose format can be returned as well as the UW group will have the member list or download a list as a CSV. Verbose output from the API includes various user information as well as gia base64 encoded image from their husky card.

This project is also intended to be a reference on how to use various APIs, see src/backend/models for the various APIs as examples.
