Within the docs, identify the eSignature SDK (client library) for your language of choice, then follow instructions there to learn about setup and configuration, authentication, accessing the object model, and more. All DocuSign SDKs are published to GitHub, but you won’t necessarily need to go there — the docs contain all the info you’ll need.
