Announcing my new Q# and quantum computing book

· 217 words · 2 minutes to read

I am extremely happy to announce that on 7 May 2022, my new book, “Introduction to Quantum Computing with Q# and QDK” has been published by Springer, as part of the excellent Quantum Science and Technology series. From now on, you can also see the book in the sidebar of this website.

I am extremely proud of this moment - it is the result of almost 2 years of hard work and countless long nights.

The major goal behind writing this book was to deliver a book that balances academic rigour and its typical mathematical consistency with the pragmatism and hands-on approach that is so prevalent in the software development world. Because of that, all of the discussed theoretical aspects of quantum computing are accompanied by both algebraic explanation and the runnable Q# code. This way, the reader is equipped with two different angles — mathematical and programmatic — of looking at the same problem space.

It is my great hope that the book will be equally relevant to students of physics, as well as to technically versed enthusiasts, such as software developers or self-learners, with background in other STEM areas.

You can get the book at all major booksellers, though I would recommend to get it directly from the publisher, Springer. I hope you like it!
