I am planning to write an article which compares QDK and Qiskit

Mainly talking about the different interfaces, and difference in running few algorithms

What all parameters should I compare and take into account, Would love some suggestions

    $\begingroup$ Q# is the programming language that the Microsoft QDK uses. So the comparison should actually be QDK vs Qiskit and/or Q# vs Python $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I think you should take all these things into account:

  • How to create a circuit and measurement in both QDK and Qiskit?
  • How to apply quantum algorithm in both QDK and Qiskit?
  • What are the backends that can be linked to by QDK and Qiskit?
  • Special features between those two (Qiskit pulse, Azure quantum, ...)
  • Performance between these two
  • Any restrictions?

    $\begingroup$ Available learning material, how easy it is to get started and support would also be an option, depending on who should be targeted in the article :) $\endgroup$
