I strongly recommend the Catalyst Tutorial. It is denser than I would have liked when figuring Catalyst out, and sometimes digresses about outdated versions of Catalyst, other than that my biggest gripe is that it completely ignores DBI Models, which means that if you don't know DBIx::Class coming in, prefer another ORM, or prefer SQL to ORM you have to put a lot of effort into DBIx::Class which is very distracting from understanding the rest of Catalyst. I also recommend becoming familiar with TemplateToolkit and Moose before starting work on Catalyst, just so that you have less to grasp while working through the Catalyst/DBIx::Class Tuturial.
I've written an auxilliary document on using DBI models (the version up is about half complete. A new version should be going up by the end of the month), you can find it at http://brainbuz.org/techinfo/Catalyst-Model-Simple-Tutorial.html<http://brainbuz.org/techinfo/Catalyst-Model-Simple-Tutorial.html> or on github at https://github.com/brainbuz/Catalyst--Model--Simple--Tutorial.
