• 6:45pm - 8:30pm: Our featured speaker

One of the most promising areas of future computer research is quantum computing. Quantum computing has the potential to change every aspect of how computers are designed. Quantum computers clearly process information differently than their traditional Von Neumann counterparts. But does quantum computing offer anything not already provided by classical computers? The answer is yes. Quantum computing provides tremendous speed advantages due to the engagement of a form of parallelism that is not achievable to traditional computing. This talk does not require any prior experience in physics or deep knowledge in mathematics. You will walk away with a deep understanding of the foundations of Quantum Computing, what it can do, and how you can experiment this spectacular technology using the Microsoft Q# programming language.

Our Speaker: Riccardo Terrell
Riccardo Terrell is a seasoned software engineer and Microsoft MVP who is passionate about functional programming. He is active in the .NET community and the author of "Functional Concurrency in .NET", which features how to develop highly-scalable systems in F# & C#. Riccardo believes in polyglot programming as a mechanism for finding the right tool for the job.
