QNickel9 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop | December 8-10 & 15-17, 2023

The QNickel9 workshop, organized by QCousins of QTurkey, QIran, QSouthAfrica, and QUAE is a collective quantum workshop specific to the regions where the cousins are the majority. Join us for an introductory workshop on “Quantum Computing and Programming”, which focuses on Oracle’s quantum algorithms. You will learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs.

We invite anyone interested in learning more about quantum computers to join us. During the workshop, we will use QWorld’s Nickel Introductory Training. Educational materials and lectures will be in English. Mentor support will be in English and also in the local language of the QCousins attending the event. We will use a dedicated Discord server to host the workshop.

Participants are expected to follow the workshop materials, attend the lectures, and complete the assignments on their own. The workshop will be held over 6 days, with approximately 9 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.
