Introduction to Conda

Date: 10/06/2021
Time: 10:00 am PDT - 12:00 pm PDT

Does your computational workflow rely on multiple specific versions of software? Would you like to learn how to test new packages without disrupting your current workflow?

This free 2 hour hands-on tutorial will introduce you to the package and environment manager, Conda. You’ll learn how to set up conda environments and manage software installations. We’ll discuss other applications, such as packaging software, running workflows, or creating binders all with conda!

Prerequisites: No prior experience is needed, although some familiarity with bash command-line computing is helpful.
