    The building industry is exploding with data sources that impact the energy performance of the built environment and health and well-being of occupants. Spreadsheets just don’t cut it anymore as the sole analytics tool for professionals in this field. This seminar focuses on outlining the process of acquiring data science skills for building performance analysts with little or no previous programming experience. An introduction to data science skills will be given in the context of built environment professions. The seminar will provide numerous learning paths for various built environment-related tasks and help motivate participants to dive in!
