Project Teddy is an IoT/Big Data project currently under development by the South Florida Developer Evangelist Team. The goal of PT is to build a teddy bear that you can literally have a normal conversation with. This meetup is to discuss the current progress of project teddy from a technology perspective, how it is built, why it is being built the way it is, the architecture and even dive into code if there is time. Primary topics will include: Architecture, Azure, Hadoop, Real Time Analytics, Media, Natural Language, Project Oxford and several other items.

Project Teddy is in progress and feedback is always welcome.
