# Summary

In this chapter, you learned about the Quantum Lab Notebooks and ran a simple quantum circuit. You completed three basic functional steps: creating a quantum circuit using the Notebook and the Qiskit library, executing your circuit with a backend simulator and real device, and reviewing and visualizing your results from within the Notebook.

One thing you might have noticed is that using the Notebook with Qiskit also simplifies integrating your classical experiments with a quantum system. This has provided you with the skills and understanding to enhance your current Python experiments and run certain calculations on a quantum system, making them a hybrid classical/quantum experiment.

When the quantum calculations have completed, the results can be very easily used by your classical experiments.

Now that we are familiar with the Quantum Lab Notebooks and are able to create and execute a circuit, in the next chapter, we will start learning the basics of quantum computing...
