Seriously: Are there really people out there NOT using a debugger when developing code?
To me that is like climbing Mt.Everest blindfolded, all on your own.

There may be extreme exceptions where no traditional debugger is available or can't be used, e.g. in a certain class of embedded systems where the code is in flash memory and cannot be modified on a byte or word basis, so you can't poke debug interrupts. Or the processor is so primitive that it doesn't provide interrupts, or doesn't give sufficient external access to the address bus to run a probe on the outside. But those are very special cases. And I have never seen a system where you cannot do "printf style" debugging by setting output signals - even 8-bit embedded processors offer that (otherwise, how would they control what they are supposed to control?)

Those special cases are lightyears away from desktop development in C#. If you run a company, you most certainly can affort the investment in, say, Visual Studio. For hobby programming, there is a free version providing so near-100% functionality that you probably won't notice the difference. (There are some differences, but they are rarely relevant for hobby programming.)

Even printf debugging can work well in some cases (sometimes it is usesful as a companion to the interactive debugger, e.g. to traverse data structures and print selected values if this requires more processing than a simple watch expression).

But "debugging by cranial massage", as one University lecturer phrased it. is not sufficient.
