What is the meaning of event, routine name and routine in B4A? I just started learning this language but i do know how to program in python though.

An event is, as the name itself says, an event fired when some action, automated or not, has taken place.
sub button1_Click
Click is the event fired when the user taps button1.

A routine name is usually the name, either of the view that the routine handles, like the one above, or a user general purpose defined one.
A routine is a block of code (may be a sub or not), that executes a specific task
For x =0 to 1000
X= X+1
The examples above are very simplistic and should not be regarded as real world code
