QNickel2 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop | December 14-18, 2021
We are happy to announce the second QNickel workshop, this time organized by QTurkey. Join us in the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming” focusing on oracular quantum algorithms and learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs.
We are inviting everyone wishing to learn more about quantum computers, especially women. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Nickel by QWorld. The educational materials are in English, but the lectures and mentoring will be in Turkish. In addition to lectures, there will be also tutorial sessions in which some of the tasks from the material will be solved. We will use a dedicated Discord server to conduct the workshop and the lectures will be broadcasted from Youtube.
Participants are expected to follow the workshop materials, join the lectures and complete the material on their own. The workshop will be held during 5 days with approximately 18 hours of training.
The participants completing the workshop successfully will receive a diploma!
The participants are expected to work individually at least 16 hours to complete the following sections of Nickel: Conventional Quantum Algorithms in Qiskit, Solving Max-Cut problem using Grover’s Search in Cirq
The tutorial is a collection of Jupyter notebooks. 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.
Thanks for your interest. We’ve reached our capacity, so the application forms are closed.
There will be new workshops in the upcoming months to apply for.
