1) What extension are delphi files in?

2) Is is compiled?

3) What languages is it similar to (Don't say pascal) ?

4) Where are the best tutorials that you have found?

5) Anything I should know before getting started?

ill answer you at simple sentance..

delphi creates .exe/dll and more more more files.. delphi is most pro languange afer CPP.. (and i dont mean that CPP is better than delphi - if u know how to use it)
delphi is most like Visual BASIC languange.. really simple and easy. And you should start by creating your own forms with buttons and stuff.. remember that this forum will always be for you to help you in any problem you got there..
about tutorials.. just google for "Delphi Tutorials" it will give ya tonots of beginner's tuts for delphi.

Delphi uses .dfm for form definitions, and .pas for code.

It is compiled.

Delphi is object-pascal + borland components. It is similar to Lazarus, which is also based on object-pascal.

I haven't used any tutorials while learning it.

It's an OOP/Event-Driven language, and share characteristics with other languages like it.

I'll have to tell my boss we should stop coding in Delphi, then. It's not the biggest language out there, but it works well, and the component shops are obviously staying in business.
