What’s the right way to add a custom event in Craft 3?

Several weeks ago, creating custom events in Craft 3 plugins was discussed. P&T’s Mailer.php was referenced as an example. Here are the basics of what you’d do.

1. Create an Event events/YourEvent

2. Create an instance of that event in your code

$event = new YourEvent([ 'entry' => $entry ]);

3. Trigger the event: $this->trigger(SomeClass::EVENT_CONSTANT, $event);
