APIs are about exposing the state of an underlying resource on-demand. Events are about encapsulating the cause and/or effect of a change that may include state and beyond, at a point in time to be routed to specific consumers or be broadcast for public consumption in REAL TIME.
Myth! As Giri mentioned the idea of simply just exposing an API does not make the underlying API or the overall architecture "event-driven"
