Is your New Years' resolution to start writing quantum-computing algorithms as a side hustle? Hey, me too!
So I'm going to spend this weekend playing around with Microsoft's newly-released "Quantum Development Kit". It includes their language Q# – designed for writing quantum-computing algorithms – as well as a little "universal quantum simulator" to test your code.
Their "Hello, World" quickstart here has you entangle two qubits. Another demo, outlined in the video below, includes teleporting a message via entangled qubits.
This is going to be a super weird weekend.
