QBronze Introduction to Quantum Programming Workshops

QBronze is our introductory level workshop series using the Qiskit framework provided by IBM. It covers the basic concepts of quantum programming and computing. We use the Bronze material prepared by QWorld in our workshops.

The workshop content includes:

  • Basics of classical systems (Probabilistic bits, coin-flipping, biased coins, probabilistic states, and probabilistic operators)
  • Basics of quantum systems (Quantum programs as circuits: registers, gates, measurements, execution, and reading the outcomes, quantum state and operators)
  • Quantum operators on a quantum bit
  • Entanglement and basics quantum protocols
  • Grover’s Search algorithm

By June 2021, we have organized 15 workshops and handed out 439 diplomas.

Q# Workshops

Q# is a quantum programming language developed by Microsoft, partly modeled after C#. In collaboration with Microsoft Turkey, Microsoft Quantum, and Global Shapers Community Ankara Hub we have organized a trainers training workshop with the Microsoft Quantum team in Seattle, and the participants of that workshop later organized their own workshops in Turkey. 

Nine Q# workshops were organized between 20th of Feb – 30th of May. 159 participants completed the workshops (which required completion of homework assignments and attending the lectures). In total, 10 instructors completed the “Trainers Training” program by successfully running their own workshops using the Q# material.
