I'm looking for similar event like sales_order_shipment_save_after and sales_order_shipment_save_before in Magento1.

Oh I am using Magento 2.1.3.

I tried

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="sales_order_shipment_save_before">
        <observer name="poczta_beforeshipment" instance="Test\Poczta\Observer\BeforeShipment" />
    <event name="sales_order_shipment_save_after">
        <observer name="pocztapolska_aftershipment" instance="Test\Poczta\Observer\AfterShipment" />

But it is not working. I tried find it here https://cyrillschumacher.com/magento2-list-of-all-dispatched-events/ but I'm not sure what one is a correct.

Should I use observer via di instead event observer? http://blog.chapagain.com.np/magento-2-before-after-method-event-observer-using-plugin/
