#Quantum – The key for Mac and Linux is on Visual Studio Code #VSCode


Yesterday I wrote that one of the most important news of the last Update of the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit was the support for Mac and Linux. Well, this is achieved because the basis of Q# is the interaction of a host in .Net Core 2.0 and the connection to the Quantum Simulator.
This allows us to work with Microsoft Quantum DevKit using any language that supports .Net. Where C # and F # may be the most popular. And it is on this basis that we can also use Microsoft Quantum DevKit in other platforms, using Visual Studio Code as a development tool



From Visual Studio Marketplace we can download an extension for VSCode that allows us to create projects in Microsoft Quantum DevKit. As expected we can also debug, write our Q # code and more with VSCode.

The installation is very simple. We start installing the extension for VSCode


A couple of PowerShell commands


And that’s it! now it’s time to program some Qubits 😀

Happy QCoding!
