👋 Howdy folks!
Hope everyone has had a nice weekend and a good start to the week. This issue we’ll focus a bit on a wonderful blog post about solving the traveling salesman problem using quantum computers - cool!
Looking for a particular area of quantum computing you’d like to see covered in the next issue? Ping me and let me know!

The traveling salesman problem is an NP-Complete problem which becomes very difficult for classical computers to solve, but what about quantum ones? Fortunately, Michał Stęchły wrote an excellent blog post about it and even made a demo page to test it out for finding a route between European cities. Also, the algorithm is open source!

👋 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.
