Warehouse

The warehouse is the official Quantum Technology repository. Inside you won’t find all the available QL software but only a limited selection.
Which parameters did we choose for this selection?
First of all we included only the programs we tested and used in our projects; we also listed only those that after our examination resulted to be solid, flexible and documented.

There is much software available for our platform, but most of it consists in amateur productions, often outdated or not fully tested. In the midst of this “sea” it is difficult to bring out what’s significant: this requires hours of research and testing.
We did this for you, providing you with everything you need in order to make your system as competitive as possible.
