Workshop 2014

Clayton Miller will be leading a half-day workshop “Python for Building Modellers” at the 2014 ASHRAE–IBPSA-USA Building Simulation Conference in Atlanta, GA, USA in the morning of Monday, Sept. 8, 2014.

Participants should download the Canopy Express or Canopy Academic versions of Python before the session.
