## Ready to be part of the second quantum revolution?

Then this is the right place for you! I offer practical, hands-on courses in:

and

The target audience is IT professionals who love programming but prefer not to be lost in mathematical details.

## From classical to quantum: The challenge

For a newcomer to quantum technology, there are two hurdles to overcome:

** Quantum weirdness: **The laws of quantum physics are confusing and counter-intuitive. In fact, nobody understands quantum mechanics.

** Mathematics: **Introductory texts usually presuppose a very good understanding of linear algebra over the complex numbers, making it a no-go for many IT people.

## Why quantum computers? Why now?

Because they are…

** Different: **They represent an entirely new way of computing, which opens up a largely untapped perspective when thinking about IT problems.

** Imminent: **In a few years, quantum computers are expected to find their first industrial applications, and later to revolutionize many fields including materials science, cybersecurity, drug discovery, logistics and financial optimization, clean energy, machine learning and AI; and this is just the conservative expectation! However, history suggests the most successful applications will be those nobody can foresee at this point.

** Powerful: **Inside a (universal) quantum computer there will be soon more variables to manipulate than there are atoms in the visible universe.

** Ultra-secure: **Quantum technology makes it possible to design communication protocols whose security is guaranteed by the laws of physics.

## Why take this course?

Because it’s…

** Practical: **Instead of overwhelming you with theory, the focus of the course is to teach you how to actually program a quantum computer.

** IT-to-IT: **As I work in IT, I am very well aware of the gap my peers have to bridge between the classical and the quantum way of thinking. Put it differently, your trainer speaks the same language as you do.

** Fun: **It’s all about stories and games, which happen to be an extremely powerful way to explain exotic concepts.

## Learning outcomes of the course

You will be able to write programs that run on a (real) quantum computer. At the same time, the course will equip you with a solid foundation, as well as with a practical way of thinking about quantum topics.

An equally important goal is to build up a community of users of existing quantum computers. A growing community will accelerate the discovery and development of yet unimaginable applications.

You can find more details on the Quantum Computing and Quantum Cryptography course pages.
