That’s all important, true, but …
… in reality the only thing that matters is to (paraphrasing Pratchett’s words) “not only to find out whodunit, but howdunit too” not even being sure “what they dun”. So, if you have that detectivistic mind-set and enough technical knowledge to pinpoint evidence – you will be very welcome in the Second Line Support team. CSI for software, yeah!
