QDrive

“Quantum programming workshop travelling to your city”

Quantum Drive is our spring and summer project in 2019.

We travel by our car to various venues and teach the basics of quantum programming and quantum computation by doing 3 days workshops.

Our target countries are the neighbours of Latvia, the Eastern Europe, and the Balkan countries.

Our aim is to reach more than 400 participants by driving 20.000 km through 20 countries in 100 days.
