The F# and C# communities have blogging events called Advent Calendars (F#, C#), in which every day in December one awesome community member publishes a blog post about the language. I think it’s an amazing way to bid farewell to the old year and to celebrate the new one, and Q# needs one too!

(I asked Sergey Tihon for permission)

So, let’s write some Q# blog posts!

The rules are simple:

  1. Reserve a slot by leaving a comment on this post. The slots are assigned on the first come, first serve basis. You do not have to announce the topic of your blog post until you’re ready to publish it, but we’d really love to hear it beforehand!
  2. Prepare a blog post (in English) about Q#, learning Q#, teaching Q#, using Q# for research, tools for working with Q#… You got the idea.
  3. Publish your blog post on your assigned date. Don’t forget to link back to the Q# Advent Calendar from your post, so that your readers can find the entire advent.
  4. Leave the link to your blog post in a comment to this post, and we’ll add it to the calendar. If you share a link to your post on Twitter, use hashtags #qsharp and #QsAdvent.

We are pursuing publishing a compendium of all of the posts to the arXiv, the standard repository for work on quantum computing.
If you would like to have your post included, please make sure that it is published under a Creative Commons CC-BY license.

Let’s start with 24 slots, December 1st through December 24th, and if we have more volunteers than that we’ll add extra slots. We have a couple of blogs by our team members in store, but we’ll keep those flexible to fill the slots which end up unclaimed.

Thanks to everybody who will participate!
