In Nov 2019, Shadab started a meetup group by the same name and I (Moses Sam Paul) reached out to him to understand his vision and we met a couple of times at DYU art cafe in Koramangala and we had our first offline meetup and people with similar interest came together to keep the community going.
From Jan - March 2020 we had conducted a few podcasts and offline meets with IISc professors and Qiskit advocates
Since the pandemic, we've been conducting multiple experiments
1)Theme-based months eg: Cryptography August
2)Apprenticeships - we selected 20 out of 100 applicants. The seed for learning circles was sown here.
3)Hiring focussed Hackathons in collaboration with BosonQPsi - QuantumWinter
4) Fellowships - Free of cost for the November batch
Dec 2020 - Jan 2021 we've consolidated all our learnings, set processes, and in a unique position to grow this community into India's largest Quantum Startup churning incubation center.
Starting Feb 2021, we will be opening up the community for
