Quantum Computation deals with considering computation as fundamentally physical, as well as replacing the classical binary digit (bit) with the quantum binary digit (qubit). While the classical bit is either 0 or 1, the qubit can be in a superposition of these states. Computation systems that use quantum phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, can solve certain complex problems very quickly.

Strange as it sounds, the computer of tomorrow could be built around a cup of coffee. The caffeine molecule is just one of the possible building blocks of a 'quantum computer', a new type of computer that promises to provide mind boggling performance that can break secret codes in a matter of seconds.

If you’ve heard about quantum computers, you might get the itch to start working on something in the field. What is quantum computing? How do you get started?
