Shownotes for episode 4, published Wednesday, 22 Jun 2016

If you’re a sysadmin or a developer, you’ve probably used curl before. Or some kind of project, like PHP, Python, Ruby, … that uses libcurl. You can thank Daniel Stenberg, creator and maintainer of curl, for that.

In this episode I talk to Daniel about the history of curl and libcurl, we discuss the web and open source, Google’s Quic, LibreSSL vs OpenSSL and so much more. If you’re interested in ‘the web’, this episode is for you!
