Mark Lassoff is the founder of LearnToProgram.TV, a Vernon-based company offering online programming training classes as well as in-person boot camps.
Lassoff has a long history of corporate programming training, and says it was a natural move to begin more consumer-oriented instruction. The relative low cost of launching an online business has created a considerable amount of demand for Lassoff’s self paced online video courses.
“I saw a hole in the market that we could fill,” Lassoff said, adding that professional courses usually start at around $3500 per week and involve taking time away from the office to be immersed in the training program. Lassoff’s online courses run between $50 and $200, competitive with what a programming instruction book might cost at a bookstore.
