Make the transition to Node.js if you are a Java, PHP, Rails or .NET developer with these resources to help jumpstart your Node.js knowledge plus pick up some development tips.  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

PIE stands for Progressive Internet Explorer. It is an IE attached behavior which, when applied to an element, allows IE to recognize and display a number of CSS3 properties.

CSS Level 3 brings with it some incredibly powerful styling features. Rounded corners, soft drop shadows, gradient fills, and so on. These are the kinds of elements our designer friends love to use because they make for attractive sites, but are difficult and time-consuming to implement, involving complex sprite images, extra non-semantic markup, large JavaScript libraries, and other lovely hacks.

PIE currently adds full or partial support to IE 6 through 8 for the following CSS3 features:
  • border-radius
  • box-shadow
  • border-image
  • multiple background images
  • linear-gradient as background image
In addition, PIE adds support for border-image and linear-gradient to IE 9, which already supports the other features natively.

Other features are under active development.
