Using Many Worlds of Compute Power with Quantum
Quantum computers can use all of the possible pathways generated by quantum decisions to solve problems that will forever remain intractable to classical compute power. As the mega players vie for quantum supremacy and Rigetti announces its $1M "quantum advantage" prize, we live in exciting times. IBM-Q and Microsoft Q# are two ways you can learn to program quantum computers so that you're ready when the quantum revolution comes. I'll demonstrate some quantum solutions to problems that will forever be out of reach of classical, including organic chemistry and large number factorisation.
James has worked in software since the 1990s, when TDD was something you studied but never did and Agile and Lean were words you used to describe athletes. After working in a startup for 9 years, where he learnt the hard way about Agile, Lean Experiments, Microservices and Pipelines, he started a new life as a consultant in 2015. James is now a principal at Codurance where he tries to encourage positive business transformation through software excellence and a focus on outcome driven cross functional teams.
