Just a quick note that Laravel 5.2 now features an artisan command:
php artisan make:auth
This will create the basic views you need for login, registration, and password resets.
You might still want to read through this tutorial, it will give you an idea on how the AuthController works, which is essential later on when you want to modify it. Also, I provide the routes that you will need and we cover the redirectTo property, which will you most likely need as well.
