QIreland is delighted to announce
Ireland’s 1st Quantum Computing & Programming Workshop
24th - 28th May 2021
Free to participate and open to all with an interest in programming and learning about Quantum computing
This is a great opportunity for students and staff with some programming experience to receive quantum computing programming tuition and practical experience
What is it?
It is a workshop aimed at secondary school students, university and graduate students, researchers, professors, and industrial people from Ireland (that's you!) who wants a practical introduction to Quantum Computing & Programming.
When is it?
The entangling event for QIreland will take place during the last week of May: Monday 24th to Friday 28th May 2021 from 6-10pm in the evenings.
There is a ‘How to install everything’ session on Sunday 23rd May from 7-9pm so you can be confident of your computer environment.
Can I take part?
Yes, you can and completely for free. You will see the registration link below - Fill this out by the 20th May. You will receive an email closer to the event giving you instructions on how to install the programs on your computer for the workshop.
It is a programming workshop and will use Python and Jupyter Notebooks (Anaconda). We will give you materials to introduce Python and the basic math needed for the workshop, which you can checkout beforehand. It would be a big advantage if you already have some basic programming knowledge and know about matrices.
What do I need to take part?
A computer with Python, Anaconda and some Python libraries installed and the commitment for the five evenings of the workshop.
What do I get out of this?
All the knowledge and some fun too! You'll be able to learn and use fundamental aspects of Quantum Computing and meet other people from Ireland (and maybe from abroad) with similar interests. In addition, upon completing the daily homeworks/short tests you can obtain a diploma for your efforts (QBronze achievement award).
How do I register?
You may apply for the workshop by filling the application form until May 20, 2021.
