What i've been up to...

It's been a long time, i'm not doing blogging. I know i'm not very good at it but i really wana keep doing it because it helps in different ways like keeping track of what you've done so far, what you were doing at particular time in the year, your interests etc.

Initially i started writing blog by picking stories/articles i like so i can share them with every one but i think that's not the main purpose of blogs. So now i've deicided instead of going for 5-6 short posts every month i'll do just 1-2 posts a month but that would be totally mine.

Lets see if i can stick to this plan, as i plan alot but it's very few i implement. But at least i do implement few, isn't it? :)

Generics type full name representation

Folks,

Just got to know how generics are represented internally, you might need it while using reflection or with WCF proxy generation or whenever you need to know your custom defined generic type.

List as
System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.Int32]]

Dictionary> as System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2[[System.String],[System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.Int32]]]]

The weird '1 shows that it expects 1 parameter and '2 it expects 2 parameters, isn't it bizarre.

Rock it!
