I was looking over the detailed agenda for the Esri Developer Summit, and I came across a session that states Conda is now included with ArcGIS Pro: Harnessing the Power of Python in ArcGIS Using the Conda Distribution.
Python has a rich ecosystem of packages you can use in your own code, but installation used to be complex. Conda is included with ArcGIS Pro, and allows you to easily install libraries into your Python environment, and distribute that code to others. Join us and learn to bend Python to your will.
*This session will be offered complimentary on Esri Video following the Developer Summit
I must admit, this was news to me, and I haven't had time to dig into it more. At this point, I haven't found much else in terms of documentation about it, but at least this session's video will be available for free after the summit.
