# Events

Events are created when people interact with an app.

An event includes data that corresponds to the pattern associated with the app that generated it.

An event also contains context about the app that generated it, the method by which it was created (E.g. QR code), as well as other metadata collected and included automatically.

When an event is created it is processed by every action attached to the app that generated it.
