QWorld
I am a theoretical computer scientist working on quantum automata and complexity theory.

Recently, I started to be interested in education and popularization of quantum technologies and quantum software.

QWorld Under my leadership, we, as five Quantum Cousins, initiated QWorld,
a global network of individuals, groups, and communities
collaborating on education and implementation of
quantum technologies and research activities
.

Quantum Programming and Quantum Software

Here are the projects I have been fully involved:

QWorld: A global network of individuals, groups, and communities collaborating on education and implementation of quantum technologies and research activities.

QCousins: Operational groups under QWorld all around the world willing to popularize quantum technologies and quantum software and to involve more people to the field by working locally and/or internationally.

QWomen: The QWorld channel working for involving more women and underrepresented groups all around the world in quantum technologies and quantum software.

QJunior: The QWorld channel inviting the juniors to grow together with quantum technologies and quantum software.

QKitchen: The QWorld channel working on developing free and open access educational materials for the fundamental concepts and ongoing-upcoming developments in quantum technologies and quantum software.

QUniversity: The QWorld channel working for involving the universities with the developments in quantum technologies and quantum software by (i) designing courses, curriculums, and study programs and (ii) training professors.

Bronze: An introductory material for quantum computation and quantum programming. It can be used to organize three-day long workshops or to design a 2-credit course for juniors including interested high school students.

QDrive: Our spring and summer project in 2019. We traveled by our car to various venues and taught the basics of quantum programming and quantum computation by doing there-day workshops.

QSemester: An academic semester for introduction to quantum software by focusing on both theory courses and practical implementations.
