Working with conda#

Installing Anaconda Distribution or Miniconda gives you access to conda, Python, and thousands of other popular packages. Anaconda Distribution installs more than 300 of these packages automatically, while Miniconda is a more lightweight distribution that contains only conda, python, their dependencies, and a small number of other packages.
