"A quantum computer harnesses some of the almost-mystical phenomena of quantum mechanics to deliver huge leaps forward in processing power. Quantum machines promise to outstrip even the most capable of today’s—and tomorrow’s—supercomputers." (IBM) 6:30: Networking 7PM: Lab 8:30: Q&A Brianna will lead this lab on the basics of quantum computing. Though she is not a physics expert, she will be leveraging her expertise in Python to code a simple quantum computing exercise by connecting to a quantum virtual machine, and go through the basics of quantum computing. This is a bit of an advanced lab, but no matter your level, all are welcome who are interested! Beginners, this would be great if you would like to understand and get familiarized with quantum computing concepts. Int/Advanced, this is a great opportunity to use your Python skills! Code of Conduct. Women Who Code (WWCode) is dedicated to providing an empowering experience for everyone who participates in or supports our community. Our events are intended to inspire women to excel in technology careers, and anyone who is there for this purpose is welcome.

Talk: Android Development Essentials Explore the world of Android app development. This talk will prepare you to create your very first Android app. You’ll learn about: * Android Studio, the preferred IDE for creating Android apps, * The Android emulator, software designed to mimic a real device, * The different files in a typical Android app, * And finally, you’ll learn how an app is built from the bottom up This talk is designed to provide you with everything you need to know to understand the Android development process. Let’s get started! Agenda 6:00 Mingling + Welcome 6:30 Talk 7:30 Q&A 7:50 Closeout Laptops are optional Event will likely be held at a start up in downtown DC near the Metro Center metro station (the location will be updated here as soon as this is confirmed)
Speaker Support is a group for encouraging an supporting members of the WWC community to speak publically. We are especially interested in helping women to speak on technical topics, which can be difficult for many reasons. We are interested in helping people to speak at both local meetups, and also at conferences. We will be helping people brainstorm ideas, develop their talks, and commit to attending talks to provide support in what can be a difficult environment.
