The Quantum Development Kit makes it easy for you to start experimenting with quantum computing now and includes:

· 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.
