Girl Develop It RDU is proud to announce our first ever webcast! In an effort to think of new ways to offer programming to our members, we're testing out webcasting to see how useful it might be for our classes.
Our leaders are off to an un-disclosed location in the mountains and will be streaming live from a Yurt to answer your questions, talk about upcoming events and classes, and get feedback about the group.
We'll also be joined by special guest Rachel Nabors!

WHAT IS A YURT?
A yurt is a portable, bent dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia as their home. The structure comprises a crown or compression wheel, usually steam bent, supported by roof ribs which are bent down at the end where they meet the lattice wall (again, steam bent). The top of the wall is prevented from spreading by means of a tension band which opposes the force of the roof ribs. The structure is usually covered by layers of fabric and sheep's wool felt for insulation and weatherproofing.
