About Delphi XE Learning Resources

Hello Community,

I'm absolutely new on programming and I want to learn Delphi as my main and solid first choice.
Searching on Google I did not find any interesting resource about how can I start programming on Delphi (or not just with updated content). I want to know about learning sites, learning video courses, ebooks and all of them completely easy to follow and readable.

Please, I hope that someone can help me with my request.
Also, Are there any free version of Delphi to start programming with?. And the result of the created apps with this IDE can be used for business?.

Regards,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Coming from Turbo Pascal, Borland Pascal and Delphi back in the 90's up to Delphi XE 2, I don't use it anymore since 2014.. The .NET environment is much better.

Also you need to know much more about OS internals or how the compiler works, when you want to do some fancy stuff.

Just my 2ยข.

ste5an, hey yeah, that track looks totally familiar :)
except for the last part ... i'm kinda stubborn

but, i see that same track going on all around me

Delphi was great in Borland's hands, they made a very good Delphi 7 version, which you get free when buying a new version from Embarcadero

using an app for business depends on the license you bought
it says in, if it's for commercial use or not

resources ?
google for Marco Cantu, Bob Swart, Julian ...
