Quantum computing is moving from advanced labs to real-world application, and opportunities for qualified quantum computing specialists are growing rapidly. **
Quantum Computing Fundamentals
** is the first systematic guidebook for the growing number of technical professionals and students who want to master the field’s core concepts and practical techniques.

Leading security expert, researcher, instructor, and author Chuck Easttom II brings together all the knowledge you need – including essentials that other books assume you already know, such as basic linear algebra, logic gates, and elementary quantum physics. Easttom’s quizzes, hands-on exercises, and review sections help you build true mastery

*right now*. He walks you through building real applications with Q#, Microsoft’s powerful new quantum computing programming language, and using Microsoft’s simulator so you don’t need your own quantum computer.

With

*Quantum Computing Fundamentals*, you don’t have to read multiple books to find what you need: one guide brings it all together. By the time you’re done, you won’t just understand quantum computing theory: you’ll have hands-on
