Harnessing the unique behavior of quantum physics and applying it to computing, quantum computers introduce new concepts to traditional programming methods such as superposition, entanglement, and quantum interference.

Microsoft, having a clear mindset towards the coming quantum era, is partnering with quantum hardware companies to provide developers with cloud access to quantum hardware.

Leveraging the Azure Quantum platform and the Q# language, developers are now able to explore quantum algorithms and run their quantum programs on different types of quantum hardware.

In this session, we will explore Azure Quantum’s capabilities and run a Q# quantum application on a real quantum computer.
