Join us at 6:45 p.m. on Sept. 30 for a conversation with journalists from the graphics/interactives teams at FiveThirtyEight (http://fivethirtyeight.com/) and The Upshot (http://www.nytimes.com/upshot/?_r=0). We'll ask about their first few months post-launch – what they've tried, what they've learned, what successes they've had, what challenges they've faced, and how they approach making graphics & interactives for the web.
6:45 p.m.: Doors, dinner + socializing
~7:15 p.m.: Discussion with Ritchie S. King and Allison McCann (FiveThirtyEight) and Amanda Cox and Kevin Quealy (The Upshot)
~8:15 p.m.: Hiring announcements, networking and socializing
