MEF LSO Developer Community

Accelerating the development of MEF APIs for service automation, within and between providers and enterprises.

Supporting MEF API Development

The MEF LSO Developer Community enables software developers—typically from service provider IT departments, technology vendor R&D groups, students and post-graduates from academia—to ask and answer questions, and to contribute tools and other forms of code to SDKs in the LSO API Release Framework. The community fosters interaction between MEF members, non-member industry professionals and academia to develop and evolve the standards and related SDKs.


Engaging with the Community

The LSO Developer Community supports development of LSO APIs—MEF APIs for each of the LSO Reference Points—defined in the LSO Reference Architecture and Framework standard. 

LSO SDKs are created per LSO Reference Point as a collection of the APIs, software artifacts and supporting documentation. LSO SDK repositories are publicly available on GitHub and use GitHub teams as a communication channel. Additionally, extended SDK versions are available exclusively for active MEF Members; they contain work-in-progress elements and pre-release standards.

Members of the community may join a current discussion or post a new discussion to ask questions and provide comments. Separate communities are defined on GitHub for each published LSO SDK.

LSO Developer Community Manager

The MEF LSO Developer Community is managed with a dedicated MEF resource. The Community Manager is responsible for facilitating the community collaboration that drives the adoption of MEF APIs. The manager is the point of contact for those who would like to adopt or contribute to MEF APIs, or join the LSO Developer Community in order to interact with other members.
