In less than five years, the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity in two high-pressure hydrides, $SH_3$ and $LaH_{10}$, has revolutionized the field of superconductivity, setting a record for $T_c$ to almost room temperature (260 K), and opening a new route to search for new superconductors which strongly relies on computational methods for crystal structure prediction and superconductivity. In my contribution, I will review the current theoretical understanding of the field of superconductivity in high-pressure hydrides and propose possible strategies to obtain conventional superconductors with improved superconducting properties.
