This is like starting a movie after 90 minutes, but here is a short(ish) answer:
In 1999 when I was working on desktop programming, the computer stored information as “bits” of either a 1 or a 0. Think about a giant spreadsheet, but the only values you can put in are either a 1 or a 0. that’s it. A “byte” is a collection of 8 bits.
Quantum Computing (as it is being explored now) allows it to be a 1, or a 0, or anything in between, and then that is called a “qubit” instead of a “bit”, like “Quantum Bit”, get it? Yup, that’s it.
So what does Quantum Computing have to do with Josh? Well, Josh wants to apply these bleeding edge computing mechanics into modern applications. If you take the old architecture of “101010111010101”, and switch it to these “Qubits”, the ability to map out large amounts of information becomes exponentially easier.
I’ll try to update this blog weekly, but work has a way of getting in the way 😉
