De­vel­op­ers get more quan­tum com­put­ing good­ies

OpenSource For You - - Foss Bytes -

Mi­crosoft’s Quan­tum De­vel­op­ment Kit (QDK) got its first ma­jor up­grade since its in­tro­duc­tion last year. It wit­nessed the ad­di­tion of sev­eral new fea­tures de­signed to open the plat­form to a wider ar­ray of de­vel­op­ers. The up­dated QDK will be in­ter­op­er­a­ble with the Python com­put­ing lan­guage.

Ac­cord­ing to sources at Mi­crosoft, de­vel­op­ers have been want­ing the kit to be made avail­able for Linux and MacOS. This newly re­leased QDK in­cludes sup­port for Linux and MacOS, as well as ad­di­tional open source li­braries.

The Quan­tum De­vel­op­ment Kit was an­nounced last fall at Mi­crosoft’s

Ig­nite con­fer­ence.

Sup­port­ing in­ter­op­er­abil­ity for Python al­lows de­vel­op­ers to ac­cess their ex­ist­ing li­braries from Q# with­out hav­ing to port it, Scott Fried­man, a spokesper­son for Mi­crosoft, pointed out. “These up­dates sup­port Mi­crosoft’s am­bi­tion to en­able a scal­able Quan­tum so­lu­tion for the broad­est set of cus­tomers – even­tu­ally re­al­is­ing our goal of de­liv­er­ing Quan­tum-as-a-Ser­vice on Azure,” he added.
