This is a two-day, hands-on course, intended to provide programmers with a solid foundation in universal quantum programming, as well as with practical skills needed to implement their own quantum algorithms that run on real quantum computers.
The topics covered are listed below by category. They can be adjusted based on the customer’s specific needs. Two quantum programming languages will be used throughout the course in order to get familiar with new concepts via as much coding as possible.
Prerequisite: experience in object-oriented programming in general.
The course is offered as on-site training.
