Undoubtedly the best tool I have seen to get the basics right for anyone who is a newbie. The interactiveness helps to visualize the problems for better understanding even for someone with a physics background and prior knowledge on the topic.

This is an excellent guide. I am part way through the first module and have to say it has covered most of the fundamentals in a very intuitive way.

I am an enthusiast of the product. Black Opal is the best educational tool to teach and learn about quantum computing in a visual way that makes it easier to understand the main topics like superposition, qubits, measurement, entanglement, circuits, and noise.

Black Opal is amazing, I've bought a 1 year subscription. Explaining complex topics in simple terms - that's brilliant. I would be glad to support if you decide to translate this in Ukrainian.

You can imagine my interest when I saw a link to your product with modules that were visualized and did not require a heavy math background. I absolutely loved the first module on Superposition. It took me longer than a few minutes because I wanted to explore a few things.

This is the sort of thing needed as quantum computing and quantum tech move from the domain of quantum physicists to a wider audience of end-users and applications. Fundamentally, this level of learning helps to demystify quantum computing and fuel the quantum conversation.

Black Opal is a fantastic resource. I love being able to visualize Bloch sphere rotations with the Practice module. I'm still working on my Circuits badge!

I'm halfway through the first skill pathway of Black Opal and I've got to say it's really really well done - the 'byte-sized' lessons, interactive visualizations, exercises - everything is perfect. Absolutely loving the experience.

This course is amazing. Orders of magnitude easier to follow than any other quantum computing learning resource I've come across. Really looking forward to the skills that are coming soon.
