Welcoming the Quantum Era with Azure Quantum

 
English Advanced Development

Harnessing the unique behaviour of quantum physics and applying it to computing, quantum computers introduce new concepts to traditional programming methods such as superposition, entanglement, and quantum interference. Microsoft, having a clear mindset towards the coming quantum era, is partnering with quantum hardware companies to provide developers with cloud access to quantum hardware. Leveraging the Azure Quantum platform and the Q# language, developers are now able to explore quantum algorithms and run their quantum programs on different types of quantum hardware. In this session, we will explore Azure Quantum’s capabilities and run a Q# quantum application on a real quantum computer.
