Quantum Computing for Developers

A Java-based introduction

Quantum computing is on the horizon, ready to impact everything from scientific research to encryption and security. But you don't need a physics degree to get started in quantum computing. Quantum Computing for Developers shows you how to leverage your existing Java skills into writing your first quantum software so you're ready for the revolution.

Rather than a hardware manual or academic theory guide, this book is focused on practical implementations of quantum computing algorithms. Using Strange, a Java-based quantum computer simulator, you'll go hands-on with quantum computing's core components including qubits and quantum gates as you write your very first quantum code.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
