As I already told you, sports is one of my biggest interests. One of the highlights of my year 2018 was the FIFA World Cup in Russia. Every year a big football tournament like the Word Cup or the Euro’s take place me and my friends compete to see who can be the betting expert of the tournament.
I created a web site were the exclusive group of people that received an invite could place their bets on each and every game, the final winner and the top scorer of the tournament. At the deadline date, one second before the tournament kick off, the possibility to place bets was automatically disabled.
In order to make the correction of the bets and the update of the dynamic leaderboard easy and effortless for me, I created a automatic database job that calculated the points for the users after every game.
