Using Anaconda to manage packages on Hoffman2 Cluster

February 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Zoom

Anaconda is a popular, free and open-source distribution of many packages for scientific computing and data analysis. It is easy to use Anaconda to install and manage packages because of its ability to resolve version conflicts and package dependencies. On the Hoffman2 cluster, however, the environment is structurally different from that of a personal computer; there are other best practices to be considered. One can take advantage of the system-wide Anaconda base to install one’s own packages or to build…
