During the registration process we are asking users to provide more than just an email address and a password. We are asking for their first and last name, their company. However, to this point we are throwing that information away. It would be good to store that information somewhere.
In this post it is time to start leveraging our authenticated user. Upon successful login (or register) we will bring the user inside the application. We will also give them a mechanism to leave the application (logout). One of the key ways to help a user understand where they are in our application is through the menu. We will do some menu refactoring to make this easier.
