UPDATED: Friday Hacks #211: Quantum Computing & Linters in Dart

Date/Time: 22nd Oct, 5pm

Zoom link here

Talk #1: Exploring Quantum Computing through gaming

This webinar talk will introduce to you the wonderland of Quantum games and see how games can help people learn quantum computing concepts.

Huang Junye is a Quantum Developer Advocate at IBM. He is part of the Qiskit community team whose mission is building an open, diverse and inclusive quantum community. He is focusing on promoting quantum education in the Asia Pacific region.

Talk #2: Why Lint?

In this talk, we’ll talk about linting. We’ll go through the motivation and mechanics behind linters in general. We’ll then go through an example by dissecting a lint rule in Dart. Dart is an object-oriented programming language with C-style syntax developed by Google.

Hacker Tools: CLI debugging and profiling

Date/Time: Wednesday, 27th Oct 2021, 7.00pm – 9.00pm
Venue: Zoom
Zoom link: https://nus-sg.zoom.us/j/81493385393?pwd=a3F1RHg1U2gyRjJ0QW5qSmxIcjZNUT09

Come learn how to debug and profile various things on Linux, all from the command line. We’ll look at how to figure out what’s going wrong with programs you write and the operating system itself.

Please ensure you have access to real Linux. If you are on a Linux distribution, you are set; if you use Windows or Mac, consider installing Ubuntu in a virtual machine like VirtualBox. If you are on Windows, you can also use Windows Subsystem for Linux 2. (WSL 1 is not suitable.)

- WSL: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10

Please make sure you have the following programs installed in your Linux system:

- Git, Perl 5, Python 3, gdb, strace, ltrace, Valgrind, GCC, perf (Linux kernel), htop, dstat, iotop, df, du, free, lsof, ss, stress, s-tui
- On Ubuntu, the following packages: gdb strace ltrace valgrind linux-tools htop dstat iotop lsof iproute2 stress s-tui procps build-essential python3 perl git
- On Arch Linux, the following packages: gdb strace ltrace valgrind perf htop dstat iotop lsof iproute2 stress s-tui procps-ng base-devel python perl git

This workshop is largely based on the Missing Semester of Your CS Education lecture series conducted in MIT. This week’s topic is based on https://missing.csail.mit.edu/2020/debugging-profiling/.
For today's first Friday Hacks talk about Quantum Computing (starting at 5PM), Junye will be running some demos of quantum circuits / programs on real quantum computers on the cloud. To run such programs yourself, you can register an account on IBM Quantum before the event through https://quantum-computing.ibm.com/ where you can access quantum systems hosted on the IBM Cloud.
We will start in 10 min!
