QBronze69 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop, October 15-16 & 22-23 & 29-30, 2021

We are very happy to announce our first QBronze workshop using ProjectQ co-organized with University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) under the sponsorship of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

The workshop will be held fully online, and successful participants will receive our memorial QBronze diplomas.

During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-ProjectQ by QWorld. We will use Tencent Meeting for online lectures, WeChat to communicate with each other and mentor supporting, and QWorld’s Canvas server for homework submission. Online lectures and mentoring will be in English, but there will also be mentors speaking in Chinese. During the workshop, there will also be a special session on HiQ.

Tutorial | Bronze-ProjectQ

Our tutorial is a collection of Jupyter notebooks. We use python to solve the tasks and ProjectQ 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.

The participants are expected to work individually at least 20 hours to complete Bronze-ProjectQ:
