If graduates were taught how to use the VS2017 debugger, 6 months from now someone would complain why they weren't taught how to use the VS2019 debugger.

Well, this is a bad example because typically the debugger doesn't change all that drastically from one version to the next, but you understand where I'm headed with that. They should learn about the debugging process, rather than the specific of any given tool.

Indirectly related: When no debugger is available (eg, software is running on a customer's system and nobody has access to it)...do said developers have access to a great logging library, and know what to log and when? The importance of this particular aspect cannot be stressed enough. Knowing how to use a debugger won't get anyone very far if you can't reproduce a problem locally and can't install any debugging tool--and a log file is all you have at your disposal.
