Thank you for this suggestions that we look for simple algorithms that demonstrate the power of quantum computing with Q#. You point to a nice video that motivates the power of quantum computing using the "find the queen in a deck of cards". As the deck grows exponentially in size, classical computer memory cannot scale as can quantum computers using qubits. To motivate the value of quantum computing, the video also calls out several real problems like prime number factoring (Shor's Algorithm) to demonstrate the potential of quantum computing to solve problems efficiently that classical computers cannot. The algorithms in our sample library contains many of those algorithms and shows how these algorithms can be developed with the power and expressiveness of Q#. Take a look at the SimpleAlgorithms.qs samples. The comments we include with the samples points to references that compare the quantum solution to the classical and also provides information on why those algorithms are important to solving real problems.
Several others have posted similar suggestions with other ideas for demonstrating the power of quantum computing with Q#. We welcome these ideas and your voting for them to guide of community efforts, and we welcome community contributions.

We don't have any offsite training at this time. But we have posted some additional ways to learn. Check out the new Quantum Katas project. See our blog post: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/quantum/2018/07/23/learnatyourownpacewithmicrosoftquantumkatas/

We are considering these QAOA samples. We would also love to see these community contributions.

Thank you for this suggestion. We'll consider this. We'd also really love to see a user contributed HHL.

Thank you for this suggestion. We really appreciate getting suggestions for compelling samples that demonstrate the value of quantum computing, are thoughtprovoking, and sometimes even shed light on questions about fundamentals of quantum mechanics, such as the one you raised. It seems possible to implement closedtimelike curves in Q# such as the ones underlying the Lloyd Gedankenexperiment using the builtin gates, measurement, and postselection. It would be great to see this coming into fruition as a sample or library contributed by the OSS community.

This is a good suggestion. There is another suggestion that is asking for downloadable pdf for documentation, so I'll merge this suggestion into that one:

This is an area of active research in quantum computing.

Thank you for this suggestion. It would be good to hear from others if this is desired or if this could lead to unintended errors.

Thank you. We'll take a look at this.

This is a known issue that we are working on. Try closing and reopening Visual Studio to see if this resolves the issue.
We recommend using Quantum Development Kit together with Visual Studio Code to build and run Q# projects for macOS.
