50 years ago, quantum computing was just a theory. Today, quantum programming is getting close to becoming the new reality for software developers.
Quantum computers have the potential for disrupting how we fundamentally store, process and utilize data and could provide significant breakthroughs in the optimization of complex systems, artificial intelligence and many other areas. Universities around the world are investing heavilty in quantum computer research. Companies like Google, IBM, Microsoft and Rigetti Computing are making it possible for the rest of us to actually leverage quantum processors in the cloud.
So, how we can we, as developers, get started with quantum programming? And what kinds of problems will quantum computers actually solve?
