Anaconda is a distribution of the Python and R programming languages that simplifies package management and deployment for scientific computing applications (data science, machine learning, large-scale data processing, predictive analytics, etc.). Anaconda is free and open source software and is available for Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Anaconda’s package manager, conda, is used to install Python and R binaries, C/C++ libraries, and data-science packages from the Anaconda repository. The Anaconda distribution includes data science, machine learning, and visualization packages such as NumPy, pandas, Dask, TensorFlow, and Matplotlib.
