I want to develop demo mapping application using Open Street Map but didn't get proper guidance and any kind of help desk as like developer zone comparing other map. So, it's really help full for me if you helping out to make it. I'm waiting for your valuable feedback.

I wants to know that how to create geofence and routing functionality even how to work with different kind of events as like marker event, map event and etc. And if you have any proper guidance website for that then please send me a link.

OpenStreetMap is essentially just a big pile of data. People do write software and services around it, but because OSM data is essentially open they don't need to "plug into any ecosystem" in order to do that. There's no "developer zone" as such because there's no need to try and persuade people to develop for a particular platform (because OSM isn't one in the same way that e.g. Google is). Therefore, if you're interested in geofencing or routing, just look for independent advice about that anywhere - if it isn't tied into another platform, it'll probably be using OSM data as an example anyway.

What I should have linked to as well was:

it may not be at the level that you're interested in, but it should help you to ask the right questions.

You could begin with the routing page of the osm wiki

If you want a solution out-of-the-box, then have a look at some SDK from mapbox, Mapzen or similar companies mentioned at Commercial OSM Software and Services

Browse each website there to find out whether any of them has frameworks available that you need.
