In this episode Noon is joined by Chris Granade, from Microsoft, who talks about their background, their research path, and what brought them into quantum computing. We discuss Chris' journey to the Q# development team, and the book they have co-authored with Sarah Kaiser. We also cover Chris' vision of the necessary skills to get engaged working in the field, and some pitfalls to watch out for. Tune in for an exploration of a very interesting person and field, and to get some hints as to where functional programming and type theory might play a role in future quantum programming languages!

- Carl Bender - Mathematical Physics - Sequences - PIRSA — This is the lecture series on convergent and divergent sequences.
- Nielsen & Chuang Textbook on Quantum Computation — A classic now but still, I believe, the bible. Michael Nielsen has since put out some more accessible introductions: https://quantum.country/.
