Full stack app that uses the Elo rating system for intra-office activities like ping pong
New users can sign up under their organization to create a new account. They can then record games that they've played against other registered users. With each new recorded game, the players' Elo ratings are updated. The leaderboard shows how each player is ranked and includes data for their Elo rating, number of games played, number of wins, and number of losses.
The Elo rating is a simple rating algorithm used in chess and some other sports and games. For the theory and math involved, see this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system. I've chosen a K-factor of 32 and a starting value of 1200 for each new player so that your score is always positive.
