Special Seattle TS Announcement! We're combining our regularly scheduled 9/23 and 10/25 monthly meetups into one *EXTRA SPECIAL MEETUP* on Thursday, October 10th.

Why would we do such a thing, you ask? Because that just happens to be the night before TSConf 2019 ( on Friday, October 11th, and it will give everyone a great opportunity to eat, drink and discuss all things TypeScript with some familiar faces before we attend the conference the next day. We're hoping we can hear from some of the conference organizers and speakers as well.

This event will be hosted at the ExtraHop office downtown again (near the Convention Center). Food & drink will be provided.

As usual, we're posting this event before we've got the talks ironed out. A lot of great ideas keep being raised, which are listed below. Message the group if you'd like to claim one! (And reminder, lightning talks are great too).

We'll update the list with the [Full Name] of volunteers as they arise.
