This tutorial provides a hands-on introduction to quantum computing. It will feature the three pillars, architectures, programming, and algorithms/applications of quantum computing. Its focus is on the applicability of problems to quantum computing from a practical point, with only the necessary foundational coverage of the physics and theoretical aspects to understand quantum computing. Simulation software will be utilized complemented by access to actual quantum computers to prototype problem solutions. This should develop a better understanding of how problems are transformed into quantum algorithms and what programming language support is best suited for a given application area. As a first of its kind, to the best of our knowledge, the tutorial includes hands-on programming experience with IBM Q and D-Wave hardware.
