What is the difference between pip and conda?

pip is the package installer for Python. It is used to install and manage software packages written in Python. conda is a cross-platform package and environment manager for installing multiple versions of software packages and their dependencies. It is often used for managing Python packages, but can also manage packages for other languages.

Here's a code snippet for installing a package using pip:
