Quantum computers are not just science fiction anymore, as companies are building more powerful quantum computers. While the concepts of quantum computing have been around for over 30 years, it hasn’t been generally accessible until recently. Open source software for quantum computing has started being developed as these new machines are being built. Learning the lessons from the history of developing classical computers, there are already several open source projects available for quantum computers. So as the technology matures there will be an open source ecosystem already for quantum computing.

This talk will provide an introduction to the basics of quantum information theory, show some current quantum computers, explore the open source tooling available for quantum computing, and show how you can use that to write your own quantum programs and run them on actual quantum devices.
