Why 30 Days?

Well, they say it takes 21 days to form a habit, (BS tho) but we're giving you a few extra days just to be sure. And why an hour a day? It's the Goldilocks of time commitments - not too long, not too short, but just right!

#Quantum30 Oath

As a participant of the Quantum30 Challenge, I solemnly pledge to:

  • Commit to Consistency: I will dedicate at least one hour each day to learning about quantum computing, recognizing that consistency is key to mastery.

  • Embrace Curiosity: I will approach each topic with an open mind and a thirst for knowledge, ready to dive into the fascinating world of quantum technology.

  • Share My Journey: I will share my daily learnings with the community, understanding that teaching is a powerful form of learning.

  • Support My Peers: I will engage with my fellow learners, offering support, sharing insights, and fostering a collaborative learning environment.

  • Respect the Process: I will honor the process of learning, understanding that it's about progress, not perfection. I will celebrate my successes, learn from my mistakes, and always strive to do better.

  • Embrace Failure: I acknowledge that failure is a part of the learning process. If I stumble, I will quickly get back up, learn from the experience, and continue my journey with renewed determination.

  • Uphold Integrity: I will act with honesty and integrity throughout this challenge, submitting only my own work and giving credit where credit is due.

By taking this oath, I commit to making the most of the Quantum30 Challenge, to growing as a learner, and to contributing positively to our QuantumComputingIndia community.

You're in great company.

Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Computing is something which is partly taught in school . There were some questions which were not solved because of the shortage of time at school.On following the roadmap given by QCI I was able to channelise my preparation and could get my doubts cleared.

Why the point system?

Creating a competitive environment is a key step in learning ecosystems.

The impact of a competitive environment on learning in humans can vary depending on individual factors and the specific context of the learning experience. Some research suggests that competition can enhance learning and performance in certain situations, while in others, it may have a detrimental effect.

Competition can create a sense of motivation and engage individuals in the learning process. When people are competing against others, they may be more likely to exert effort, focus their attention, and apply themselves to tasks in order to outperform their peers 1. Competition can also provide a performance goal, which can increase motivation and drive individuals to learn and improve their skills

Furthermore, competition can stimulate the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with motivation and reward. Dopamine can enhance attention, memory, and cognitive processing, potentially leading to improved learning outcomes

However, it is important to note that the effect of competition on learning is not universally positive. Excessive competition or a highly stressful competitive environment can have negative consequences for learning. Excessive pressure and stress can lead to cognitive overload, anxiety, and decreased cognitive performance. In such cases, the focus may shift from learning and understanding to simply trying to win or outperform others.

You're in great company.
