Microsoft is offering a developer kit to help get started in quantum computing and using the company’s quantum-focused Q# programming language.
Microsoft has been bullish lately on quantum computing, with CEO Satya Nadella recently calling these computers the future. A quantum computer can solve complex problems in hours or days, compared to classical computers that would take billions of years, the company said. Microsoft sees quantum computing having major implications in areas such as health care, energy, and environmental systems.
Developers can download the developer kit from the Microsoft Quantum website after filling out a form requiring contact information and answers to other questions.
