Magnus Daniel Stenberg is a Swedish developer and recipient of the 2017 Polhem Prize[4][5] for his work on cURL.

He was born and raised in Huddinge, a suburb south of Sweden's capital Stockholm. He created a utility which, after various name and license changes, became known as cURL and is currently available under the cURL License (based on the MIT License.[6])

From 2013 to 2018, he worked for Mozilla.[7] In February 2019, Daniel joined wolfSSL[8] to offer commercial support for cURL and to work on cURL as full-time as possible.[9] He is active in the IETF, a member of the working groups for HTTP/2 and QUIC,[10] and contributed to several RFCs.[11]

In April 2023, he became a member of the Polhemsrådet, the Polhem Prize's committee.[12]
