IBM releases first free quantum computer programming textbook/course completely based on jupyter notebooks

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 3:24 pm

I’ve frequently advocated in this blog for the use of jupyter notebooks. I think it’s a great idea to release, as IBM has done today, a free quantum computer programming textbook completely based on jupyter notebooks. I see this as a natural evolution from the clunky programming manuals of the 20th century. This IBM textbook makes a recent crop of quantum computing paper textbooks suddenly seem obsolete and expensive. It’s probably also the last nail in the coffin of Microsoft’s Quantum Katas — another dud in a long line of poorly conceived and profoundly unpopular products from an immoral, evil company. IBM probably wrote this textbook prompted in no small measure by the MS Katas, and it quite effectively counteracts and nullifies them, because IBM has their own qc hardware to invoke in their textbook, and MS doesn’t.
