FireMonkey Under the Hood: How FireMonkey Does What It Does

Here are two great videos from ITDevCon 2012 by Ray Konopka that talk about how FireMonkey does what it does. Ray gives an overview of the high-level differences between VCL and FMX. In part 2 he shows how to create custom FMX controls.

I love the way Ray gets frustrated. He's just like us.

I spoke with Ray and he gave me the link so we can download the source code he used in the demo. Thanks Ray!
