Quantum Computing and Python

Episode #158, published Fri, Apr 20, 2018, recorded Tue, Apr 17, 2018

You've surely heard of quantum computing and quantum computers. They are based on the (often) non-intuitive nature of very small particles described by quantum mechanics. So how do they work and what will they mean for us as a society and as developers?

Luckily, I have Hannah Sim, a Ph.D. student from Harvard working on quantum algorithms here to give us the full story.
