Abstract: The Common Astronomy Software Applications (CASA), is the primary data processing software for the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA), and is often used also for other radio telescopes. CASA has always been distributed as a single, integrated application, including a Python interpreter and all the libraries, packages and modules. As part of the ongoing development of CASA 6, and the switch from Python 2 to 3, CASA will provide greater flexibility for users to integrate CASA into existing Python workflows by using a modular architecture and standard pip wheel installation. These proceedings of the 2019 Astronomical Data Analysis Software & Systems (ADASS) conference will give an overview of CASA 6 project.
