• Clearly explains core concepts, terminology, and techniques
• Covers the foundational physics, math, and information theory you need
• Provides hands-on practice with quantum programming
• The perfect beginner’s guide for anyone interested in a quantum computing career

Dr. Chuck Easttom brings together complete coverage of basic quantum computing concepts, terminology, and issues, along with key skills to get you started.

Drawing on 30+ years as a computer science instructor, consultant, and researcher, Easttom demystifies the field’s underlying technical concepts and math, shows how quantum computing systems are designed and built, explains their implications for cyber security, and previews advances in quantum-resistant cryptography. Writing clearly and simply, he introduces two of today’s leading quantum programming languages, Microsoft Q# and QASM, and guides you through sample projects. Throughout, tests, projects, and review questions help you deepen and apply your knowledge.

Whether you’re a student, professional, or manager, this guide will prepare you for the quantum computing revolution--and expand your career options, too.
