Modules in this learning path

Quantum computing has become a hot topic in the last few years. Learn about the qubit, and the building block of a quantum computer. See how Azure Quantum and the Quantum Development Kit can help you write quantum algorithms usign Q#, a quantum programming language. Then, you can run your programs in real quantum computers thanks to the Azure Quantum service.

Get started with Q# programming by building a quantum random number generator.

Learn the fundamental concepts of quantum computing by using tools in Q# and the Quantum Development Kit.

Learn why resource estimation is crucial in the development of quantum computing, and learn how to use the Azure Quantum Resource Estimator.

Learn about libraries in Q# and how to add them to your projects, discover the Q# API documentation, implement another application of Grover's algorithm by using the standard library, and write documentation for your own code.
