Like everything, it is really a matter of personal taste. Catalyst is
fine and has lots of cool features. However, I would definitely
recommend giving Mojolicious a try. I (personally) think the syntax for
controllers looks a little nicer than Catalyst (eg. you don't have to
drag around the extra "$c" context variable everywhere). Although, I
admit my experience with it is fairly limited.

This is also matter of personal taste.  I've used DBIx::Class on a very
large project for several years and never had a problem with it, even
for relatively complex SQL. I always found it particularly useful for
keeping my db code modular which I feel in turn makes it much easier to
test and reuse.
