Who says you cannot have fun learning Quantum Computing with comics? Readers of QZ will know about how seriously we take quantum education and how important training the next generation of researchers, developers and hackers is. But learning quantum doesn’t have to mean complex slides, dull graphics and impossible problems. One of the developers behind Microsoft’s new Quantum Learning platform is hosting a free live event on the 5th of May 2021 to introduce learners to Quantum Computing and programming with Q#
Microsoft has been busy building up its learning resources to help developers navigate their way into Quantum Computing. In their new initiative, built in their Microsoft Garage, by over a dozen Microsoft staff, the resource aims to make developing with the Microsoft stack and Q# easier. Divided into three phases, students will be taken right the way from qubit basics to state-of-the-art in quantum systems.
We feature quite a few different Quantum courses. In the past we have covered courses from IBM, EdX, Coursera, Brilliant and Microsoft. We now can report there is another instalment in the popular Quantum Computing series from Microsoft. The course is named quantum computing foundations and aims to help users begin exploring quantum computing and optimization (one of the early but indeed very useful applications of Quantum Computing).
We featured Kitty Young a while back who is working at Microsoft (Quantum) and is an artist and also known for her highly creative work in helping learners understand Quantum Computing and Quantum Physics. The courses that she gave on Quantum Computing in her Comic Book series have now been made into a physical Book. We got one of the first copies and we review her highly original book.
A recent initiative from Hackaday is making quantum computing accessible. Hackaday is running a Quantum Computing allowing students to learn about the fundamentals of quantum computing. To learn more about the project you can go to the web page and understand how Kitty (from Microsoft) is transforming quantum education with her amazing quantum comics. Kitty […]
We interviewed Kitty Yeung who is Senior Program Manager at Microsoft. Kitty is a physicist and an artist and has created some of the best Quantum Learning materials we have ever seen. We interviewed Kitty and you can see that interview here. But in this article we just wanted to show off her amazing skills in Quantum Education and her Quantum Series.
Kitty Yeung PhD is responsible for some of the coolest Quantum Educational materials we have ever seen. Her comic book style format for learning about Qubits, Quantum gates and Quantum algorithms is insanely popular. We talk to her about her path to being SPM at Microsoft and how she has managed to combine her love of science, her artistry and flair for education.
