FOSDEM’19 Quantum Computing Devroom

02/02/2019 all-day
Brussels, Belgium

Quantum computing is a new emerging field that coming out of the lab and finding its applications in the real world. The space of the open source software for quantum computing is blooming with this trend, with researchers and hardware providers alike investing in creating software infrastructure for this new computing paradigm.

With that in mind, the purpose of this devroom is twofold:

  • to flatten down the learning curve and break perceived barriers that prevent developers from entering the field of quantum software development
  • to ensure that the field is dominated by high-quality, community driven FOSS open source software, standards and protocols
