Noop is a new language that attempts to blend the best lessons of languages old and new, while syntactically encouraging industry best-practices and discouraging the worst offenses. Noop is initially targeted to run on the Java Virtual Machine, is what the Noop site says.
Noop runs on the Java Virtual Machine, and in source form looks similar to Java. The creators say that the goal is to build dependency injection and testability into the language from the beginning, rather than rely on third-party libraries as all other languages do.
While it takes many years for a language to mature and become mainstream, a language for the JVM and from Google is an interesting development nevertheless. However the plethora of new programming languages for the JVM seems to have also resulted in slowing down the progress of all these languages.
