  1. Do I need to pay any money to register for the challenge? No. You do not have to pay anything to register yourself for any challenge on HackerEarth.

  2. Do I need to have any specific qualifications to be a participant for the challenge? If you love to code and you are interested in learning more about quantum computing, you are more than welcome to participate in the challenge. Check out the Prerequisites tab to learn more.

  3. I would like to work with a team, but I am new to the community, how do I get started? We encourage everyone to work together on a team with up to 5 participants. If you are looking for a teammate join the Qiskit slack's #india-challenge-2020 channel to reach out to the community.

  4. Will there actually be a new challenge every day? Only for the first week. Each day during the first week a new Daily Challenge will be released at 17:00 IST. Week 2 will be comprised of a learning phase (8th-11th Sep) until 11th Sep when the Final Challenge will go live.  

  5. How do I submit my work for the challenge? In order to participate in the challenge, you will need to download a Jupyter notebook, which will be located in the Daily Challenges tab. There will be a few lines of code that you will have to edit in order for the challenge and final notebooks will be exported and submitted as a python file.

  6. What environment will I use for the challenge? Challenge participants will need a local installation of Qiskit and will work in a Jupyter notebook. Once the challenge has been solved, answers will be exported and submitted as a python file.

  7. Does one have to be online and available for the entire duration of the challenge? No, one does not need to be logged onto HackerEarth or be online for the entire duration. Participants will only need a local installation of Qiskit.

  8. Since there is no specific technology mentioned, are there any restrictions on using other programming language, technology stacks, or libraries? Participants are welcome to use other tools or libraries, but we will not be able to provide additional instructions on external libraries. We require that all participants submit a Qiskit generated quantum circuit in the required format.

  9. If it is a team submission, does that mean all team members will have access to work at the same time? Yes, all team members can login from their account.

  10. Are all the submissions team submissions? No, during week 1 all the submissions are individual submissions and every member of the team will have to submit them separately. During week 2 only the team leader will be able to make the submission representing the whole team.

  11. What should I do if I need help or have a question? ? IBM mentors will be available on the Qiskit slack #india-challenge-2020 channel for any questions or discussions that the community has during the challenge.
