Getting Started with Quantum Computing Hands-on - Meetup

 View Only
When:  Apr 6, 2023 from 03:30 PM to 05:00 PM (ET)

Topic repeated at 2 different times, please join the session that is best suited for your time zone.
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of programming a quantum computer. We will use the IBM Quantum platform to create quantum circuits both visually using the Circuit Composer and with Python code using the open source Qiskit framework.

You will have the opportunity to run your circuits using quantum simulators and on real quantum computers in the IBM Cloud. Attendees should sign-up for a free account on the IBM Quantum platform beforehand at to best experience this hands-on session.

Note that this is part 2 of an 8-session series on Quantum Computing on Mar 22/23, Apr 5/6, Apr 19/20, May 3/4, May 17/18, May 31/Jun 1, Jun 14/15, Jul 5/6. The sessions are not prerequisites for each other, and are not recorded. We will provide reference links and do quick recaps of previous content as required, so if you miss an earlier session, you can still get value from subsequent sessions.
