Now that we know how to create pages and routes in Laravel, let's learn about Laravel controllers. With Laravel controllers, you can create specific functionality and pass it to routes the right way. You can use these controllers and classes to create variables and arrays to use on your Laravel blade templates without creating a lot of programming code in your HTML.

Controllers allow you to control your application and give you a way to pass information from different parts of your Laravel application.

In this tutorial, we learn how to pass user information to our Laravel dashboard and how to create and implement a simple users page that pulls from the database directly.
