conda is a tool for creating isolated environments of software
packages. Over the last few years it has greatly simplified the

the cloud or on HPC systems). In this talk Will covers: what problems
conda tries to solve, the basics of using
conda, alternative tools
that address similar problems and issues that may arise when using
