Q# Advent Calendar 2019

Mariia Mykhailova

Last year we hosted the first Q# Advent Calendar – a blogging event in which every day in December one awesome community member writes a blog post about Q#. I really enjoyed reading last year’s entries, so let’s do it again!

The rules are simple:

  1. Reserve a slot by leaving a comment on this post. (You can also tweet about it, but you’ll have to mention @tcNickolas to make sure we’ve seen it!) 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#, cool project you’ve done in Q#, learning Q#, teaching Q#, using Q# for research, tools for working with Q#… You got the idea. Don’t forget to check out last year’s calendar for inspiration!
  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.
