Ready to build quantum computing applications using Q# and the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit? This is the book for you. Q# is a domain-specific language for expressing quantum algorithms that combines familiar “classical” language constructs with quantum-specific ones. Ideal for any developer familiar with (or willing to learn) the basics of quantum computing and looking to get started with quantum programming, this pocket guide quickly helps you find syntax and usage information for unfamiliar aspects of Q#.
You’ll explore the quantum software development lifecycle from implementing the program to running it on quantum simulators to testing and debugging it. You’ll learn to use the tools provided by Microsoft’s Quantum Development Kit for each step of the process.
- Q# language details, including data types, statements, and operators
- Guidelines for organizing Q# code and invoking it from different environments
- Information on simulators and tools in the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit
- Advice on testing and debugging tools and techniques for quantum programs
