    That's a rather large question, Emmanuel, for this community. You might find some interesting and relevant use cases from the field in the My API Story section of the TMF website.

    You can also read my white paper on the advantages of a standard API framework, on the TMF website here.

    Hope it helps.

    I'd say the first step is to become a TM Forum member. That is really a pre-requisite. (you might even already have access as universities may have a membership and all students or alumni have access to TMF that way)

    Once you do, do the ODF awareness training to get used to all the key TMF assets, concepts etc.

    finally look at the immense catalogue of TM Forum assets, we have tons of assets dedicated to APIs, CX and frankly pretty everyting a telco does at all levels. Many testimonials exist on the TMF website

    this is the list of projects

    each project will produce assets, from best practices, APIs, lots of frameworks (information model, business process...), various templates...
