Qiskit is a comprehensive open-source tool for quantum computation. From simple demonstrations of quantum mechanical effects to complicated algorithms for solving problems in AI and chemistry, Qiskit allows users to build and run programs on quantum computers of today.

Qiskit is built with modularity and extensibility in mind. This means it is easy to extend its compiler optimization capabilities for higher performance, easy to add new quantum algorithms for solving classical problems, and easy to plug in a new quantum device or simulator for execution.

This tutorial will discuss the internal components of Qiskit, its convenient Pythonic user interface, and the community that has formed around it. After a brief introduction to quantum computation and its differences with classical computing, the audience will have the chance to use Qiskit and execute code on a real quantum processor.
