Users & Authentication

Nearly every app we build these days requires some sort of authentication, and probably a user account to go along with it. Even if your app is an oddball and doesn't need this, user accounts provide us with a well-understood set of use cases that will serve as an excellent case study.

Let's put some of our newfound Phoenix knowledge into practice as we implement a secure user account feature set. The goal will be to reduce explicit management of authorization & authentication on a per-resource basis as much as possible.
