    #5 Abuzer Yakaryilmaz on QWorld

    In this episode we talk with Abuzer Yakaryilmaz, chairperson of QWorld. QWorld is an organization which teaches quantum computing in over 20 countries through various initiatives. We talked about those initiatives, the story behind QWorld and why running such an organization is not necessarily a smooth sailing. We have also discussed what are some challenges present in quantum education these days and finally touched briefly on Abu's research on Quantum Finite Automata.

    #1 What Quantum Software Engineers do?

    #1 What Quantum Software Engineers do?

    In this episode I talk about the job of quantum software engineers. What this job is about and how it's different from similar positions? What challenges do QSEs face? What are some typical tasks that they work on? I tried to answer all these questions.
