Mark Lassoff's parents frequently claim that he was born to be a programmer. In the mid-1980s, when the neighborhood kids were outside playing kickball and throwing snowballs, Mark was hard at work on his Commodore 64 writing games in the BASIC programming language. Computers and programming continued to be a strong interest in college where Mark majored in Communications and Computer Science. After completing his college career, Mark worked in the software and web development departments at several large corporations. In 2001, on a whim, while his contemporaries were conquering the dot-com world, Mark accepted a position training programmers in a technical training center in Austin, Texas. It was there that Mark fell in love with teaching programming, which has been his passion ever since. Today, Mark is a top technical trainer, traveling the country providing training for software and web developers. Mark's training clients include the Department of Defense, Lockheed Martin, Discover Card Services, and Kaiser Permanente. He has consulted for Dell, Target, and the US House of Representatives. In 2011, Mark founded Learn To Program, where he provides online instruction for students who want to learn computer programming, web development and mobile application development. Over 5,000 students have taken his courses online and over one million have viewed Mark s free video tutorials on programming. Mark was named one of the top four highest paid online instructors in the San Francisco Chronicle in May 2012. Also in 2012, Mark was named to Hartford s 40 Under 40 business leaders by the Hartford Business Journal. Learn To Program was a finalist for the best startup award from the same publication. Mark is a proud colon cancer survivor. He lives near Hartford, Connecticut where he resides in a 200 year old converted textile mill.
