We engineers have to stay long hours figuring out stuff and creating code. Unlike olden days when we used to go and refer books in the library, we are now accustomed to push button life , or should I say ‘Google That’ life.
I hope this material will not only open your eyes for good, but the simple suggetions will stay with you in your sub-conscious for a long time.
Have a healthy time ahead.

Nova, the compute engine and fabric controller that supports Nebula, was open sourced by NASA last year, and it’s now part of the OpenStack build-your-own cloud open source project cofounded by NASA and Rackspace.
Nova is written in C, C++, and Python.
The Nova cloud fabric controller is built to mimic Amazon’s EC2 and S3 APIs. Most of the code is written in Python, using the Tornado and Twisted frameworks.
