Oh hello.

You've found the personal website of Simon Loffler from Adelaide Australia, otherwise known on the internet as sighmon.

What I Do

I'm a Python, Django, Ruby on Rails, iOS & Android developer who has a background in industrial design. One day a fortnight I build mobile apps, & websites for New Internationalist Australia, a social & environmental justice magazine based in Oxford, UK. The other nine days a fortnight I work for ACMI in Melbourne, Australia, remotely. I'm part of the technology team that built the software and hardware infrastructure of the renewal project, which powers the Lens and our exhibition devices.

I enjoy building software infrastructure with tools like Terraform and Kubernetes, as well as hardware prototyping/production electronics with Arduino and Raspberry Pis.

I was one of the founding members (Digital Exhibitions Manager) at MOD. a digital Museum of Discovery at the UniSA building on North Terrace, Adelaide.

Who I Am

In my spare time I love to cycle, play basketball, take photos and tinker with electronics. I've helped setup a local Hackerspace, a street art festival & the format festival in Adelaide, Australia.

I'm a member of or donate to these organisations:
