Krysta Svore, principal researcher at Microsoft, demonstrates the new Microsoft Quantum Development Kit.

The Quantum Development Kit makes it easy for you to start experimenting with quantum computing now and includes: · A native, quantum-focused programming language called Q# · Local and Azure-hosted simulators for you to test your Q# solution · And sample Q# code and libraries to help you get started

In this demo, she walks through a few code examples and explains where quantum principles like superposition and entanglement apply. She explains how quantum communication works using teleportation as your first “Hello World” inspired program. And keep watching to see more complex computations with molecular hydrogen.  

Recently in a meeting, it came up that Python’s main advantage over R was that Python is multi-domain.

In other words, Python can be used for web development, IoT devices, and a host of other uses beyond AI.

CS Dojo examines some of these uses and more.

OxfordUnion interviews Guido van Rossum, a Dutch programmer and the author of the programming language Python.

Python was first released in 1991 and is now one of the world’s most popular coding languages.

Van Rossum was the language’s Benevolent Dictator for Life until 2018, and now sits on the Python Steering Council.

He has also developed software for Google, and currently works at Dropbox.
