Welcome to Antefix, I'm Jeremy. I established Antefix in 2013. As a consultant, I've extended, refactored, and bug-fixed legacy apps, I've written unit tests and simplified build processes, and I've built test apps for hardware assembly lines. My previous work includes a digital music synthesizer, an in-car media player, a suite of hand-held order fulfillment tools, and many other embedded or desktop apps.

My clients are often engineering teams who need both technical help and high-level development guidance. Business analysis is a huge part of my job. Collecting requirements, learning about the business domain, negotiating solutions, and documenting the work in clear language — these are all necessary steps that other developers shirk.

Clients expect real expertise when they hire a consultant, so I spend many non-billable hours studying. No one developer can do everything, but I am serious about the skills I sell, and I'm up-front about what I can and can't do.

I live in the Des Moines area, but I work remotely, so Antefix is available almost anywhere. Contact me to learn how I can help your team.

About Me

I started programming when I was eleven, with a TI-99/4A and 16KB of RAM. I wrote very bad games.

Later I developed Paradox and dBASE apps at several crummy jobs. At home I used Turbo Pascal and a garage-sale Tandy 1000SX.

In my college years, I ran one of the earliest Linux distributions on a crazy-expensive ThinkPad 701c. Finally, real development tools!

I became a professional developer in 1998, working first in the Chicago area, and more recently, in Des Moines. Check out my résumé if you have trouble sleeping.

When I'm not working on Antefix, I study physics, math, and history. I also create games and music software, among other things.
