comment Is writing unit-tests difficult for me as a QA-engineer?
Very, very good! I am an SDET (Software Development Engineer in Test), and I only write unit and component level tests when I have pair-programmed the feature with a product-code focused developer. The person who writes the code should write the unit tests. "Agile Testing" is a good book for looking at the role of a tester / QA engineer next to the roles of developers.

comment QA Manager with no programming background looking to self-educate in SQE
I would recommend going the other direction - unit tests up. UI testing is one of the most challenging test disciplines to do well, and requires a solid understanding of object-oriented programming IME.

Two introductory programming courses in a quarter system would be six months, and would teach you roughly 70-80% of what you need to know to be a decent programmer for the purposes of writing test automation. I agree with most of this advice, but disagree with "choose your focus" - beyond "writing test automation" and maybe "focus on one tech stack to start". Testing benefits from breadth of knowledge more than depth, IME. As you learn, try coding testing solutions for the kinds of problems you've tested manually in the past, so you can better leverage your previous experiences.

comment Should load test validate functionality?
There's an old joke about "The code doesn't work, nothing is getting executed .... but our performance tests look great!" I had a job testing a web browser's performance once, and amazing performance was often a clue that the rendering wasn't getting kicked off.

comment Process for Web Automation Testing
How much coding experience do you have? Do you know OOP? Have you worked with Selenium before, or another UI testing framework?
