MSU-IBM Quantum Computing Bootcamp with Qiskit: Software and Background


Students, post-docs, and professors from all backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to participate. Knowledge of quantum computing is helpful, but not required. To learn more about quantum computing topics, see these resources.


Knowledge of Python is assumed. If you are unfamiliar with Python, see these resources.


We will use Qiskit, the quantum information science kit, for all hands-on programming and the coding competition. Follow the Qiskit YouTube channel for installation instructions and latest developments.


Please bring a computer pre-installed with Qiskit to the event. Installation instructions can be found here. For participants who want to attend but do not have access to a computer, a limited number of laptops with Qiskit pre-installed will be available.
