QBronze44 | Quantum Computing and Programming | November 13-22, 2020

We, as QCousins, are organizing many QBronze workshops as a part of QWorldChallenge 2020 Autumn Edition.

We are inviting high school students, university and graduate students, researchers, professors, and working people to learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs.

With recent breakthroughs in Quantum Technologies from giant tech companies like Google, IBM, and Microsoft, we are now entering the era of Quantum Computing. It is an emerging technology with a high potential to drive sciences and societies further, and open doors to greater achievements across industries.

Join us in the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming” by QTunisia to understand the science behind quantum computing and develop your first quantum algorithms on IBM Qiskit platform. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze by QWorld. The educational materials are in English, but the language of training and mentoring will be Tunisian Arabic. We will use the Discord to conduct the workshop and we will have daily Zoom meetings.

The participants completing the workshop successfully will receive a diploma!

Participants will be watching the lecture videos and completing the tasks on their own. Mentor support will be provided for participants to ask their questions and share their progress with the mentors. The workshop will be held over 6 days on two consecutive weekends, with a total of 12 hours of training.

First Weekend | 13-15.11.2020
Friday: 7 pm to 9 pm Tunis Time (CET / UTC+1)
Saturday: 7 pm to 9 pm Tunis Time (CET / UTC+1)
Sunday: 11 am to 1 pm Tunis Time (CET / UTC+1)

Second Weekend | 20-22.11.2020
Friday: 7 pm to 9 pm Tunis Time (CET / UTC+1)
Saturday: 7 pm to 9 pm Tunis Time (CET / UTC+1)
Sunday: 11 am to 1 pm Tunis Time (CET / UTC+1)

The participants are expected to work individually at least 16 hours to complete the following sections of Bronze: basics of classical systems, basics of quantum systems, basic quantum operators, quantum correlation and quantum protocols, and quantum search algorithm.

The tutorial is a collection of Jupyter notebooks, and each notebook has a recorded lecture. We use python to solve the tasks and Qiskit library to code quantum programs. The participants should know at least one programming language, and they should make themselves familiar with Python before the workshop if they do not know Python. We will share the installation instructions and a few notebooks on basics of mathematics and participants should review them before the workshop starts.
