Peter Moore: I went to work as an SQL programmer, and left as a hostage

Peter Moore was an SQL Server developer of several years’ experience prior to accepting a three-month assignment working on a financial system for the Iraqi government. He returned home two and a half years later, having been held hostage by an Iraqi militia for 946 days.

In this talk, he describes the chain of events that led up to his capture, his experiences as a hostage, and his eventual release, with many fascinating stories about programming, IT, travel, and survival incorporated along the way.

Peter still works in IT as a consultant and developer, as well as delivering training on Conduct after Capture, SERE , hostage taking, and hostile environments.
