Too Long; Didn't Read

The race for quantum computing dominance is on with four protagonists: IBM, Microsoft, Alibaba and Google. Whereas most of the attention in the quantum world is focused on the new generation of super computers that are breaking computation records regularly, we shouldn’t forget about the developers that are going to be building the first wave of quantum applications. Microsoft took the initiative to attract developers to the quantum world by releasing the first version of its <a href="https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/quantum/development-kit" target="_blank">Quantum Developer Kit</a> which even includes a new programming language called Q#. Yesterday, at the <a href="https://www.tqc2018.org/" target="_blank">First International Workshop on Quantum Software and Quantum Machine Learning</a>(QSML), Google decided to enter the race by releasing the first public alpha of Cirq, an open source framework that allow developers to create algorithms without needing a background in quantum physics.
