Emergency Manufacturing Coordination As A Legacy of COVID-19 Feedback

Over the period of the COVID-19 pandemic the disparate corners of the maker and hacker communities worldwide have come together to form a cottage industry that has successfully supplied PPE to hospitals and essential workers, helping to fill a significant shortfall in stock. In doing this we have gained valuable experience in setting up a successful distributed emergency manufacturing operation, and once the pandemic is over this collective knowledge should not be lost.

This talk aims to outline how in the time after the pandemic we should come together in some form of hacker's emergency manufacturing organisation, learn from how we responded to COVID-19, take all the things that went well and revisit those that didn't, and come up with a coordinated plan to retain the capability to spring into action again as a well-oiled machine in future similar emergencies.
