Started a new Conversation Tutorial For 6.0 That Doesn't Require Laravel/ui For Creating Auth

I don't much care for using VUEJS. Just personal preference, since Laravel as removed make:auth I was wondering if anyone knows of a tutorial that allows to build the auth and registration system without using laravel/ui
