coding is a method of building something ... what do you want to code?

if you want to make games try to learn "coding" alongside with some decent engines like Unity or UnrealEngine4, also, you can test your skills on HackerRank and CodeWars. C++ is pretty much the industry standard for everything apart of Unity. There are many tutorials on YouTube.

I work with ML/DL (artificial Intelligence) I often use Unreal Engine for simulations it's a powerful set of tools, and it is free. It will keep you busy for a very, very, long time.

Try to watch HarvardX series on algorithms, it maths is too much KhanAcademy is there to save you.

For work experience, or just general volunteering, you might want to have a look at coding clubs, they do them at my local library and it's something I have been meaning to volunteer with. More info here: https://codeclub.org/en/

For work experience, you could find local firms who do software development and coding, they may be able to offer you a place - hope this helps
