Visual Studio 2010 ASP.NET MVC and C# SaaS Starter Kit

One of the best ways to learn how to code well is to read code and write it (imagine that!). Luckily, with Visual Studio, Microsoft has graced us with tons of Starter Kits that are free to use.  Starter Kits are pre-packaged project templates that are usually completed websites that you can build on top of or read to learn from.  Now, with WebMatrix and its integration with Visual Studio, you have even more ways to get started fast on your side projects with tons of open source applications to learn about MVC, OAuth, and more.  However, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a starter kit for a tier-based pricing model Software as a Service (SaaS) web application.  With the rise of cloud computing platforms like Microsoft’s Azure, and SaaS, it’s always beneficial to know how to scale a solution not only from a technical aspect, but from a consumer aspect as well.  Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a starter kit for SaaS applications?
