Quantum Computing for Classical Developers Workshop

The buzz about quantum computing has been rapidly increasing     lately, and a growing number of developers have been looking into the subject. Concepts developers typically find challenging while investigating quantum computing include: superpositions of quantum bits (qubits), quantum gates, quantum entanglement (Einstein’s “spooky actions at a distance”), and quantum algorithms.

In this session, James Weaver will give a gentle introduction to quantum computing, including: Motivations for quantum computing, axioms of quantum mechanics, using the open source Qiskit quantum computing framework, fundamental concepts in quantum computing, and an introduction to quantum computing algorithms.
