(Alternatively titled: What You Should Know Before Reading This)
This guide is intended mainly to teach FireMonkey to programmers moving across from VCL development. I will also try and bring those readers who have never used the VCL (i.e those new to Delphi) up to speed as well.
However, it is not my intention to teach the IDE (except the form designer), the Delphi/Object Pascal language, the non-visual libraries or indeed the basics of programming. Some resources for learning about those parts will be linked in the Further Reading page.
However, since the primary focus is on existing Delphi developers and this site will be a long time in the making, those entirely new to Delphi may have to do a bit of ‘reading between the lines’ until such resources get added.
