Adding Calculation Groups with the Tabular Object Model

Kasper de Jonge shows how you can add calculation groups in C# with the Tabular Object Model:

Unfortunately, there was not much documentation available on how to add calculation groups using TOM. Luckily, I have short access lines to the devs and they helped me :). I wanted to share in the code snippet below how to add a calculation group to your model in TOM using C#. Make sure you add the SSAS NuGet packages to your project.
