I agree, and that's why I suggested that understanding concepts such as setting breakpoints and stepping through code are vital skills (without making any mention of any particular IDE). I have't found a recent graduate yet who seemed to understand these skills. Even whilst writing vanilla code, you will still need to understand these skills when your own code fails to give the expected results. And they are definitely needed when fixing bugs and maintaining code.

In answer to your other questions, we use tools such as Azure Application Insights which does an incredible job of logging diagnostic information to enable us to debug production errors.
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
