Noop is a humorously named programming language created at Google in 2009. Noop is formally defined, mathematically rigorous and compiles to Java bytecode. The language attempted to eliminate unexpected null pointer exceptions by handling null values explicitly at the type system level and enforcing safe access through the use of Option types. Although it was initially designed for big projects within Google, interest waned over time and Noop usage has remained scarce beyond initial internal experimentation phases.
