Q# – a Wish List for the New Year

In previous blog posts you have read about some of the ideas behind Q#, how it came into existence, and its development over the past year. You have read about quantum computing, quantum algorithms and what you can do with Q# today. With the end of the year approaching, there is only one more thing to cover: What is next?

A Year of Q#

The Quantum Architecture and Computation group launched Q#, our quantum computing programming language, a year ago on December 11th, 2017. This post is a brief overview of the language developments and the community growth since the first release.

Qubits in Q#

How should qubits be represented in a quantum programming language? This post attempts to answer this question and discusses qubits representation in Q#.

Q# Advent Calendar 2018

The F# and C# communities have blogging events called Advent Calendars (F#, C#), in which every day in December one awesome community member publishes a blog post about the language. I think it's an amazing way to bid farewell to the old year and to celebrate the new one, and Q# needs one too!

So, let's write some Q# blog posts!
