I published some things on quantum mechanics/quantum computing for beginners!

Awesome, @sandramedina! I gave it a like - so nice you don't have to be logged in for that. :-)There's a quantum computing channel on the Denver Devs Slack group (not just people from Denver). https://denverdevs.org/

This is great stuff! I've been interested in quantum physics since I was 16 and it was a real treat to play with the Python notebook. And I'd never heard of potential applications of quantum computing (like nitrogen fixing!) and that is fascinating. I did wish, though, that there was more explanation on how quantum *computing* specifically works -- that is, how qubits interact with each other to produce a "result" similar to regular code. Also, does the Qiskit lab actually run on entangled particles somewhere? That would be incredible!

Hey Sumita, thanks for taking the time to read it and respond, I'm glad you got something out of it!My word limit was 1500, hence the brevity :) But I'll keep that in mind for future writing. And here is more information on how the backends work:https://quantum-computing.ibm.com/docs/manage/backends/ - talks about how they are either "interface[s] to a quantum system [OR] classical quantum simulator" and if you scroll down, will show you the different systems/their number of qubits/their arrangementhttps://quantum-computing.ibm.com/docs/manage/backends/configuration - talks about configuring backends, which again, can either be a "physical (real system) or logical (simulator) setup"https://medium.com/qiskit/qiskit-backends-what-they-are-and-how-to-work-with-them-fb66b3bd0463 - general guide on Qiskit backends
