Our annual developer event, Microsoft Build, will take place May 7- 9, 2018, at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. The event invites developers, engineers, programmers, and all-around tech creators to gather around emerging technological concepts, including quantum computing.

This year, Microsoft Build will feature two sessions on quantum computing led by Dr. Julie Love, Director of Microsoft Quantum Computing Business Development, and John Azariah, Principal Software Engineer on the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit and Q# coding language.

Please join us at Build on Tuesday May 8th for the following quantum computing sessions:

Empowering the quantum revolution with Q# – 1:15PM, led by Dr. Julie Love and John Azariah.

Quantum computing takes a giant leap forward from today’s technology—one that will forever alter our economic, industrial, academic, and societal landscape. This has massive implications for your customers in any industry including healthcare, energy, environmental systems, smart materials, and more. Learn how Microsoft is taking a unique revolutionary approach to quantum and how your customers can get started developing quantum solutions with the Quantum Development Kit.

Learn to build you first quantum solution with the Quantum Development Kit and Q# – 3:00PM & 4:30PM, led by John Azariah. 

Microsoft launched the Quantum Development Kit across various platforms to help developers get started with quantum development. Come join John Azariah, a Principle Engineer from our quantum team, as he walks you through building your first quantum program in Q#, the only native programming language for quantum development. You will learn how to use Visual Studio along with the Quantum Development Kit to build your quantum solution and test it on the local simulator.

Check out the full Build session catalog and be sure to add the quantum sessions to your itinerary. In the meantime, download the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit to get a head start on building in Q#, and we’ll see you soon at Microsoft Build in Seattle.
