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 after cursory investigation of quantum computing include: superpositions of quantum bits (qubits), quantum gates, quantum entanglement (Einstein’s “spooky actions at a distance”), and the relevance of Schrödinger’s famous cat.

In this workshop, James Weaver gives a gentle introduction to quantum computing, followed by leading the participants in hands-on activities that leverage IBM Quantum simulators and computers.
