And this was just about the time when Vite was starting to get off. So I joined Vite at the, let's say, the right time there, when there was a lot of collaboration needs. So that's my story when I started. But you were doing build systems before, or you went from frontend development? I was doing, like, web in general, like for a lot of years, my work was, like, actually, like, doing a graphical engine, like, some kind of, like, online corel experience in the web. But I was doing more web development, not build tools, in particular.
Okay. And what do you love the most about tooling in general? About Vite, in particular, I think, like, what really got me into it was, like, the instant feedback. So this idea of, like, seeing your changes as you are modifying stuff. Like, if for example, you have a slider to change a color or something, you can really have the same experience you have with the dev tools. You can have it directly in, like, in your real code, no? And that instant feedback, like, really enables some kind of, like, exploration and, like, programming by exploring the options that you have. And I think that is quite interesting and what got me there.
Yeah, I think this is an amazing time for web developers. For those of us who are doing web development, like, many years ago, the state of it right now, it's, yeah, you can't compare it. It's amazing. It's really DX focused and I hope it stays this way. Where do you see Vite in the next year? Where is it going? What do you want to accomplish? I think, in core, consolidation, like, continue to make it more solid and we have some interesting features, like, improving HTML, like, we are working right now, like, there will be like CSS source map that wasn't possible before. There is some, but mainly consolidation, where I see a lot of innovation is in the projects using Vite, so the ecosystem is growing a lot and as well as like Hydrogen, there's, there are so many, so many projects that are now, like, using Vite and I realising this year is going to be about that, about the frameworks using it. Do the framework core teams get in touch with you to, yeah, okay, so they try to build on top of it, right? Yeah, yeah, and they usually need, a lot of the features, new features in Vite have been because of, like, frameworks, also maintainers actually needing them, so they propose, they even do the PRs and they work with us. Okay, thank you so much, Matthias. Again, to all the attendees, they can continue to ask you questions on Discord, devops-talk-q&a, and yeah, let me hand over to Anuradha again.
