There is at least one other potential newbie entrance point into Catalyst.
That is where he/she installs a fully functional application (generally a
blog, CMS, forums, etc.), then slowly begins contributing within a plugin
architecture, then full applications, as his/her understanding of how the
parts work expands.

Or at least, the Catalyst app user will hire someone to work on his
application. :)
