Quantum computing is no longer a thought experiment. Companies, labs, and even nation states all have achieved success at working prototypes that will be scaled within 3 years. As we build toward a sea change where quantum bits or qubits enable the instant cracking of PK, ECC, and other encryption, open source software by D-Wave and IBM is already being used. It's a chance for FOSS to get in on the ground floor of the next breed of supercomputer, as well as the systems being built to upgrade our encryption.

No Physics degree needed for this look at how quantum computers and their software work. We'll also dive into what is being done to protect future encrypted communications and even blockchains via open source.
