QBronze131 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop, March 16-17 & 23-24 & 30-31 & Apil 06-07, 2024

We are pleased to invite you to the online workshop organized by QMorocco! Join us in the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming” and learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs by using Qiskit.

We are inviting everyone wishing to learn more about quantum computers. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. The tutorial will be in English, and mentoring and online lectures will be available in Arabic and French. We will use a dedicated Discord server to conduct the workshop and we will have daily Zoom meetings.

Participants are expected to follow the workshop materials, watch the lecture videos and complete the tasks on their own. The workshop will be held during 4 weekends with about 20 hours of training. On-line mentoring will be provided for participants during the times specified in the schedule below. We will also use Canvas for homework tracking.

The participants completing the workshop (including homework) successfully will receive a diploma!

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.
