Most of us do not have a quantum computer to experiment with. In this course we will use a quantum simulator called Quirky, which runs right in your web browser (even on your mobile phone or tablet!). Each week, as you learn more about the rules of quantum computing, Quirky will gain new features, so make sure to check back regularly. We hope that Quirky will be your trusty guide as you experiment with quantum bits and circuits — perhaps you will even discover a new quantum algorithm along the way?

Quirky is based on Craig Gidney’s wonderful quantum simulator Quirk.
