In this course you will learn how to use Qiskit for working with quantum computers. Qiskit is an SDK for working at the level of pulses, circuits, algorithms and application modules. During the first week you will explore the available tools to run your experiments on IBM Quantum computers in the cloud, write your first lines of Qiskit code, do a recap of the fundamentals of quantum computing and understand how to run experiments both on simulators and on quantum devices. During the second week you will use everything you have learnt to implement two of the first quantum computing algorithms.
