The talk

just curl it

curl is a ubiquitous Internet transfer engine. An open source client-side library for doing internet transfers specified as URLs. Created for the fun of it in the 1990s, it has gradually found its way into virtually all Internet-connected devices on the globe. "The created economic value cannot be overstated". How did this happen?

A few words about the speaker

Originally published on LinkedIn.

If the creator of curl could have a grain of rice each time curl is used, that would mean… a looot of rice! We are super happy to have the curl-guy on board, welcome Daniel Stenberg!

What is the value of curl? Probably most users would find it cheap to pay a grain of rice for each use... We’ll talk more about a value calculation, the effects and a lot of other things related to curl on myConf!
