I'd second the answer from Kieren except:

I'd like to clarify that: "access to good programmers that are available".

There are many programmers knowing Catalyst out there but all known to me are either bound to projects or employed at a company (this is a general issue with Perl programmers).  However, I found that good programmers can easily learn how to write good applications with Perl and Catalyst, thanks to many tutorials, documentation, mailing lists and irc channels.  There are plenty of people to help out!
