Welcome to Antefix, I'm Jeremy. I established Antefix in 2013. As a consultant, I've extended, refactored, bug-fixed, and internationalized legacy apps, I've written automated tests and simplified build processes, I've created hardware manufacturing test apps, and I developed a complex, specialized Windows Forms control that is itself used to implement other tests.
My clients are typically engineering teams that need development help to augment their native skills. 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.

I started programming when I was eleven, on a TI-99/4A with 16KB of RAM. I wrote very bad games.
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 and history. I also create games and music software, among other things.
