I have been slow to understand the github shift. Small glimpses of shock and awe, maybe but very unaware of its power.
That all changed today!
I needed to update my cc transactions to a subscription/recurring model. The last code requires for the Impact Suite v7 release!
I was not happy changing my stores code which has been running unchanged for 10+ years. I still run Server 2003.
After a quick search of the www.authorize.net I found a link to the github project
A simple PM> Install-Package AuthorizeNet then download ZIP button I has access to EVERYTHING I needed.
I had instant access to all the require features:
Github project are very cool. How about the dev team start an ACT github project?

Downloaded and installed.
I was looking forward to this project but I was highly disappointed after installation.
Here are my quick notes
var contactInGroup = await CallServer<HttpWebResponse, object>("api/groups/" + id + "/contacts/" + contact.ID, null, "PUT");
Yes, I realize it a simple example and its not hooked to anything.
Without any documentation its very useless. First impressions last forever.
Sorry, "swwwwwing and a miss"

Jim, the sample wasn't meant as way to learn ASP.NET MVC and standard dependencies, but a rather for an ASP.NET developer to drop this in a web site / portal / app easily. It is fully functional, as long as you configure correctly the values (group name, credentials, database etc..) in the config file. Granted, we probably should add a readme to github with just that. We also should point out what this does - simple form to create a contact and add it to a group (normal lead gen). Good thing about github is we can easily update it.
