comment Does the use of debuggers have an effect on the efficiency of programmers?
But for the sake of saving the tester's time and effort, it would be best to use the debugger as and when required. Essentially speaking Unit Testing is infact a developer's job! What do you say?

comment Can you learn OO programming without procedural?
The experience you had is exactly what I have highlighted in my answer. There is no harm in starting OOP right from the beginning but if you lack procedural programming skills then OOP would not benefit the way it should.

comment How to climb up the hierarchy from a programmer (codesmith) to a full-fledged Software Engineer?
I'm glad to read your answer here. You last 3 lines are what I have also observed in my part of the world as well i.e. in Pakistan. The terms Software Engineer and programmer are often used synonymously particularly when it comes to small or medium sized enterprise projects. Essentially, speaking an "engineer" is someone who seeks a logical and sustainable solution to a problem within predefined budget constraints. Correct me if I am wrong. So the bottom line here is that a Software Engineer to a Programmer is like what a Civil Engineer is to a Mason. Thank you
