For learning MVC, I guess the Design Patterns book provides a good
description. But I find it too dry and always get bored when I start
reading it. Apparently others do too. Some of them like Head First
Design Patterns but I found it too caroonty. I've yet to find the
third Goldilocks "just right" book.
Anyway, I'm quite fond of Andy Wardley's critique of MVC:
Still, I think the tutorials Jan mentioned provide a good hands-on
introduction to the basics of Catalyst, assuming you're using TT and
DBIx::Class. I wonder whether your programmer might do better to
learn about these separate parts first before leaping into the glue
layer of Catalyst.
So that's all a bit ambiguous and doesn't answer your question, but I
hope it helps.
