One catalyst newbie to another:  The thing that helped me the most in
starting to learn catalyst (especially how to do CRUD) was looking at
Catalyst::Enzyme and Catalyst::Example::InstantCRUD.  The source code
for both was especially helpful.  I ended up going with a mix of the
two, basically a modified version of Catalyst::Enzyme with
DBIx::Class::Schema and HTML::Widget.  (If anyone is interested, I'd be
willing to make the source avaliable.  It also has the has_many
relationships on the view page.)
