The Forest  Platform

During the event, participants will be trained in using the Rigetti Forest Platform to simulate and control the 16 Qubit Aspen Quantum Processing Unit (QPU) using their Quantum Cloud Services™ QCS  :

This is done through a Python Library called PyQuil. See the link for installation and setup instructions:

PyQuil allows users to interact with, control, and run algorithms on the QPU.

Users can also simulate its behaviour on a classical computer, using the Software Devolpment Kit (SDK)​.
