Quantum computers are set to kick-start a second computing revolution in an exciting and intriguing way. Learning to program a Quantum Processing Unit (QPU) is not only fun and exciting, but it's a way to get your foot in the door. Like learning any kind of programming, the best way to proceed is by getting your hands dirty and diving into code. This practical book uses publicly available quantum computing engines, clever notation, and a programmer's mindset to get you started. You'll be able to build up the intuition, skills, and tools needed to start writing quantum programs and solve problems that you care about.
As announced on Twitter, I wrote a FREE quantum computing textbook! It's based on an introductory quantum computing course that I've been teaching at Creighton University since 2018. From the beginning, I wrote all my lecture notes and homework problems in a textbook format. A link to the free PDF is below. By popular demand, relatively affordable print versions are also available on Amazon. For reviews of the textbook, click here and here. 153554b96e
