Like most how-to books, 'How to Select a Vendor for Web Development' is the product of many years of hard-earned personal experience shaped by honest observation. The lack of useful, systematic information about selecting a website developer spurred me into writing the book I could never find but always wanted to read. Here it is: everything you ever wanted to know about selecting a website developer. Using concise language and an easy-to-read format, I present a simple, step-by-step guide that I hope will be beneficial to businesses and non-profits seeking a vendor they can trust. Since 1995, I have headed my own consulting and web development business. INITSOFT Web Solutions has worked with more than 100 clients, including large corporations as well as numerous small companies and non-profit organizations. Salim Lakhani
This volume addresses the role of communicative interaction in driving various dimensions of second language development from the perspective of Vygotskian sociocultural psychology. Emphasizing the dialectical relationship between the external-social world and individual mental functioning, the chapters delve into a wide range of topics illustrating how the social and the individual are united in interaction. Themes include psychological and human mediation, joint action, negotiation for meaning, the role of first language use, embodied and nonverbal behaviors, and interactional competencies. Theoretical discussions and key concepts are reinforced and illustrated with detailed qualitative analyses of interaction in a variety of second language contexts. Each chapter also includes pedagogical recommendations. Supplemental materials (e.g., videos, transcripts, discussion questions) have been made available as "data sessions" on the book's companion website so that readers can engage with the themes presented in the book through sample analytic exercises.
