Events or Methods
Events always fire and methods always call.
Events automatically fire on a particularly interval. Intervals are fixed and does not made by us i.e. already made. For example  – Page Load Event fire when a request for particular page goes to server.
A method may be a function or may be procedure. Function returns a value while Procedure does not return value.
Events have only two parameters:- 1st parameter: for reference and 2nd parameter: To manage event data.
