Welcome to the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit preview
Thank you for your interest in Microsoft's Quantum Development Kit preview. The development kit contains the tools you'll need to build your own quantum computing programs and experiments. Assuming some experience with Microsoft Visual Studio, beginners can write their first quantum program, and experienced researchers can quickly and efficiently develop new quantum algorithms.
NOTE: The simulator included with the Quantum Development Kit requires a 64-bit installation of Microsoft Windows to run.
To jump right in, start with Installation and validation to create and validate your development environment. Then use Quickstart - your first computer program to learn about the structure of a Q# project and how to write the quantum equivalent of "Hello, world!" -- a quantum teleport application.
Before installing, please check our release notes with upgrade and known bugs information.
If you'd like more general information about Microsoft's quantum computing initiative, see Microsoft Quantum.
