Analytics are here to stay. Data acquisition and data processing are fundamental to any analytics platform’s ability to provide meaningful insight into building performance. This presentation introduces commissioning professionals to Python software and programming. Python is a versatile platform for data manipulation and clean up; it is open-source, popular and very powerful. Josh will introduce concepts surrounding the use of Python in commissioning, starting with how to get it, how to get training, and how to grow an internal data analysis team. The session includes live examples of the software in application, custom visualizations, and the application of this software (both as a standalone tool and as supplemented with an analytics platform like Coppertree™ or Skyspark™).
