comment What's wrong with comments that explain complex code?
My main reason for inline comments is not to say anything about the code, most often its to detail requirements or customer decisions, e.g. "//customer wants this list reverse sorted".

comment Scrum: how to integrate work done by an overachieving developer out of band?
@SomeKittens - Fair point. I still think the dev in question is not really working as part of the team/process. A lone wolf can steer the project in a direction it would otherwise not have gone.

I think OP was saying the coder was productive, not high quality. My team used to have someone producing large quantities of low quality code, had it been peer reviewed its weaknesses would have been highlighted. Management approved at the time, despite warnings, and now have large buggy libraries causing higher workloads. Work as a team guys.

comment How do I deal with a slow and undedicated colleague in the team?
Agreed with PDR. I could be MUCH more productive if I put in more hours, but my company wont pay me for it. Quite often my manager, who does work many extra unpaid hours, produces bad designs or decisions & expects me to pull unpaid hours to fix it up. After a few years in the job, the OP will realise his employer will take as many unpaid hours as they can, and not always credit him for them.
