Daniel Stenberg is a Swedish developer, recipient of the Polhem Prize 2017[2][3] 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 MIT License.[4]

In February 2019, Daniel joined wolfSSL, to offer commercial support for curl, and to work on curl as full-time as possible.[5]
