Quantum games and what's a Qubit | Quantum Computing Weekly #1

👋🏻 Hi folks and welcome to the first issue of Quantum Computing Weekly.
First off, let me get this out of the way: I’m not a quantum computing expert - not even a Ph.D. - just a humble legacy computer programmer with a passion to learn more about the world of quantum computing and share the knowledge I come across. This being the case, please don’t hesitate to contact me if I make any mistakes or if you have some content to suggest.
If you want to reach out to me directly then either email (hit reply) or ping me on twitter (@jesperht).

Tiny Fact of the week
A Qubit is the quantum computer equivalent of a traditional computer bit. While a bit holds the value 0 or 1, a qubit can hold both values at once (be in “superposition”), and when observed, “collapse” into a 0 or 1 when read. This unusual property is what makes quantum computing so powerful, and in future issues we’ll touch on why. Linguistically it’s also pretty interesting, as it’s a portmanteau of Quantum and Bit, which in turn, bit is a portmanteau of Binary Digit - meta!

👋 Hi folks and welcome to Quantum Computing Weekly!

This is a newsletter about Qubits, Quantum Logic Gates, occasional mandatory cat jokes, and more.

First off, let me get this out of the way: I'm not a quantum computing expert - not a Ph.D. in anything - just a humble legacy-computer programmer with a passion to learn more about the world of quantum computing.

Join me on my journey with this newsletter as I share news, articles, videos, and anything else I come across that I think is interesting while learning about quantum computers.
