Join artbyphysicistkitty tomorrow for the start of a weekly virtual class:
Introduction to Quantum Computing
I’m starting a virtual class on Hackaday’s Zoom channel every Sunday:
- 20:30 CET
- 14:30 US EDT
- 11:30 US PDT
We will discuss a new topic for 30 mins every week. The topic will be based on my comics of the week.
As I’ve been teaching our employees at Microsoft, I’ve built up a series of systematic materials from basic concepts to algorithms to hardware systems, and a tutorial on Q# (Q-sharp) – a domain-specific programming language used for expressing quantum algorithms. Typically we took a few months to go through all the basic concepts. Every class was followed by a few Q# exercises. But it is do-able for a 2-hour workshop, such as the one at Hackaday Supercon.
On November 15, 2019, I gave a workshop on a hands-on introduction to Quantum Computing at Supercon. Here are the slides for everyone. It might felt like a lot to people who encountered the concepts for the first time. But if they go back to the slides now, they’ll be able to recall and digest at their own pace. The workshop was also on high demand. We didn’t have enough space for more people. So anyone who missed it can take a look at the slides which hopefully can give them directions to study further.
Please feel free to post any questions and discussions in this project page. And any mistakes to correct in the slides. I’ll try to answer them here. Enjoy!
