You've been hearing a lot about agile software development, get started with the eBook: Agile Product Development from 321 Gang

After being told to comment our code and taught how to deal with a coworker's bad code, I wanted to know how often our users had to deal with that guy on their team who makes simple mistakes or makes your lives harder. Was it for a personal project or enterprise software? Did the suboptimal coder get better?

I also wanted to know what advice you'd give DZone members who are going through the same situation, to avoid any mistakes you may have made yourselves.

So let us know: how have you dealt with a teammate's bad code, and was the right way to go? Let us know in the comments!

Download the free agile tools checklist from 321 Gang. This guide will help you choose the right agile tools to position your team for success.
