Microsoft’s Open Sourcing of Quantum Development Kit Enables Developers to Help Solve World’s Challenges

By IQT News posted 12 Jul 2019

(GeekWire) Microsoft is open-sourcing its Quantum Development Kit, which Microsoft first introduced two years ago. Microsoft is encouraging developers to contribute quantum apps and algorithms to help advance the technology.
“By open-sourcing the Quantum Development Kit in GitHub, we enable developers to contribute alongside an emerging community of quantum computing programmers to help solve some of our world’s most important challenges,” Microsoft’s quantum team wrote in a blog post.
Many of the scientific issues of quantum computing have been settled, Microsoft CTO Keven Scott recently said, and the remaining challenges are engineering problems. “Early curiosity” in this burgeoning concept will pay dividends for companies willing to make the leap.
