Default Factory reset?

I know this is a stupid question, but since I'm preparing my device to android 4.3, so I think its still better to ask before doing anything. After performing a factory reset, will all the apps installed in my device be deleted? What about those stored in internal sd and external sd? Everything will be gone? Also is there any way to backup my calendar entry? I'm using 'cal', well sometimes S planner, and I stored all the calendar entry in my device, not syncing with my email account. Thank you so much!

Factory reset will delete anything.
Sync your calendar to Gmail, easiest way.

I heard that there are two kinds of reset, one is factory reset (which is a 'lighter' reset) from the setting menu and another is hard reset from the boot menu. I know hard reset will wipe everything, including apps installed, and the same goes to factory reset?

Both will wipe all your apps and settings, only difference is a reset from recovery won't format your internal sd card.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.
