Laravel will by default redirect users to the
Home controller following a successful login. However, it's entirely possible you would rather the user be redirected to the
Welcome controller (or another controller altogether) and do away with the
Home controller. Doing so is easy although although the solution isn't apparent. Read on to learn how.

Auth controller (found in
protected $redirectPath = '/';
After changing the location, you're free to delete the
Home controller and associated view.
