Aleksandar Ristić

Testing Consultant at Comtrade Digital Services

As a Testing Consultant at Comtrade, I am in charge of leading a testing team of 40+ people in 7 cities across 4 countries and delivering testing and quality assurance services to our clients.

Over the last 15 years, I’ve held a number of positions, including Test Engineer, Test Automation Engineer and Test Manager and have worked with clients from various industries – storage, telecommunications, gaming, education, travel and public sector. I am very passionate about testing, finding and submitting bugs, as well as analyzing problems and finding new ways to break software under testing. I am constantly working on identifying new tools and technologies that can help me and my team deliver better software to our clients.

Devil in the Ops – Everything wrong with testing in DevOps that you were afraid to ask

It is becoming clear that Agile transformation (although making teams more efficient) is not solving all the problems in software development and that the percentage of failed projects still remains high. I will analyse the main reasons behind processes being late and/or of poor quality (opposite from

what was promised by agile transformation). I will discuss the challenges associated with 100% automation requests, cross functional scrum teams and having less time to really test for bugs. I will share with the audience how we are dealing with these challenges and what good practices you should follow.
