Pkg3: Julia's New Package Manager

This talk covers the design and implementation of Pkg3, the third (and hopefully final!) major iteration of Julia's built-in package manager. We'll begin with some history: what worked and didn't work in the two previous iterations of the package manager. Pkg3 tries to marry the better parts of systems like Python's virtualenv and Rust's cargo, while supporting federated and layered package registries, and supporting interactive usage as well as reproducible environments and reliable deployment of code in production. We'll nerd out a bit with some graph theory and how difficult it is to select compatible sets of package versions, and how much harder still it is to make version resolution understandable and predictable. But it won't be all theory – we'll also cover imminently practical subjects like "how do I install packages?"
