Mask Makers is a grassroots effort to help protect healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their volunteer-driven mission is to connect ordinary citizens who were sheltering in place (with needle and thread!) to the doctors, nurses and hospital staff who need more masks.
Mask Makers is the brain child of Michael Marucco, who recruited industry experts from all over the world to assist in the effort. Among those were employees from big brand names like: Apple, Bacardi, Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, and many other highly-skilled independent contractors. I was honored to be counted among the ranks of this star-studded group.
Working alongside a former colleague and friend Drew Haas, we developed this site using all our favorite technologies to produce a beautiful and blazing fast Single Page App.
Drew and I handled everything involving the site: development, hosting, SEO, and Analytics. We also created a staging environment and trained data analysts on how to enter, test, and deploy new data to the site.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Drew and I along with all the others involved donated our time and expertise to the cause.
