Of course. The trick there is to make sure the new dev is junior to you and then tell them that's how it's supposed to be done!

I joke, but my experience of coding 'standards' is that there is nothing standard about them, just increasing levels of being anal about how comments are denoted. Code that works and code that is written on budget is more valuable than code that adheres to PSR3 or whatever. It would be nice to hit all three, but the reality for the majority of us is that anything better than 'sloppy' is a luxury we don't have time for.
