What is MetaData

Metadata contains the information of types under the assembly like Namespaces,Classes and their members(only Signature),Structures and Interfaces etc. Type MetaData only describes about contents of an assembly, so an assembly can be called as self describing unit of execution as it describes about ifself to execution environment with help of its metadata.
Note : When we add reference of any assembly to VS, First VS will read the information  of assembly from its type MetaData.
