The Complete Quantum Computing Course for Beginners

Video description

Quantum computers are expected to change our lives drastically in the upcoming years. We know we can solve specific problems in minutes with Quantum computers while we can solve them in thousands of years with classical computers. If you want to get ahead of technology and learn about the future, then you are in the right place!

Throughout the course, we will start from nothing and understand the principles of quantum mechanics and how to use them in Quantum computers. We will write our own codes to execute on real Quantum computers using IBM Qiskit technology. If you have a high school level of mathematical knowledge, you can take this course.

Throughout the course, we will use real Quantum computers as well as simulators using IBM Qiskit framework. Python programming language will be delivered from scratch, all the way up to the details.

When you complete this training, you will be able to understand the theory and practice of Quantum computing, write your own circuits, and execute codes on real Quantum computers. You will easily adapt your quantum knowledge to other Quantum computers rather than IBM. Since IBM is the only provider for Quantum computers on the cloud, without paying any fee right now, all examples will be executed on IBMQ.

Happy coding!
