The Developer Portal

quantum computer programming - developer portal Keen-eyed readers may have noticed a new section on the D-Wave website entitled ‘developer portal’. Currently the devPortal is being tested within D-Wave, however we are hoping to open it up to many developers in a staged way within the next year.

We’ve been getting a fair amount of interest from developers around the world already, and we’re anxious to open up the portal so that everyone can have access to the tools needed to start programming quantum computers! However given that this way of programming is so new we are also cautious about carefully testing everything before doing so. In short, it is coming, but you will have to wait just a little longer to get access!

A few tutorials are already available for everyone on the portal. These are intended to give a simple background to programming the quantum systems in advance of the tools coming online. New tutorials will be added to this list over time. If you’d like to have a look you can find them here: DEVELOPER TUTORIALS

In the future we hope that we will be able to grow the community to include competitions and prizes, programming challenges, and large open source projects for people who are itching to make a contribution to the fun world of quantum computer programming.

  1. Hello Suzanne,

    I’m president of Digital Sense, a technological and software development company located in Honduras.

    I’m interested in begining to program the D-Wave One, but I haven’t a developer account yet and I’d like to know in advance what subscription model do you plan to offer? Would there a fremium or trail package? In case there is a cost. How much would it be approximately?

    • Hi Bayron,

      If you send an e-mail to sgildert at dwavesys dot com with your name, contact details etc. I can put you on the list to be notified as soon as the new tools come online. We are hopefully going to start opening up the portal to select developers around the end of January 2012. The initial release of the tools will be free.

      • Thanks Suzanne. You’re a very nice and smart person.
        On sunday I saw the talk you gave in Hopkings University about ‘Why the world needs Quantum Computing?’. I hope there are great advances in AI in the incoming years due to quantum computing.

        Have you heard about the OpenCog Proyect lead by Dr. Ben Goertzel? Do you think these algorithms could be implemented on the D-Wave?

        Best regards.

  4. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this site. I am hoping the same high-grade web site post from you in the upcoming also. Actually your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own site now. Actually the blogging is spreading its wings fast. Your write up is a good example of it.

  5. Hello Suzanne,
    I am an undergraduate student majoring computer science in Tsinghua University in P.R.China.
    May I request access to the developer portal?
    Or,just “send an e-mail to sgildert at dwavesys dot com with your name, contact details etc.” as you said? I wonder.
    Thanks and Regards.
