About Mark-- The Guy Behind LearnToProgram.tv
Mark Lassoff’s parents frequently claim that he was born to be a programmer. In the mid-eighties, 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 companies such as Dell, Target, Lockheed Martin, and government agencies including the US House of Representatives. In addition to traditional classroom training and consulting, Mark releases video tutorial training for aspiring programmers on his website, www.LearnToProgram.tv and Udemy.com.
He lives near Hartford, Connecticut where he is in the process of redecorating his condominium.

Mark makes learning simple, easy to understand, he doesn't go to fast, or slow. By the time you're done, you feel like you've actually learned something.
This helped me start with the step by step that I needed. I liked having the option to download the lesson code so that I could see it and even play with it. I liked seeing questions from other users. The video quality could be better but overall I am learning from the class and will be able to apply what I have learned.
It has been a while since taking my HTML course in college a few years ago, and I am looking at getting into web development. I needed a refresher course on how to start a webpage, and this course was perfect for that.
Even if I were a first time HTML student, I would learn no problem with this course. It was a simple step by step process walking you through the whole thing. I really enjoyed it.
Mark lays out the fundamentals very well. Although I had some prior HTML experience, Mark was able to fill in the gaps and solidify what I already knew. Mark's down to earth teaching approach is awesome and can't wait to finish some of his other courses. No regrets in taking this course whatsoever
This course is pitched just right if your familiar with computing, but want to get a grounding in HTML and CSS.
