In this video series we will learn, how to build a RecyclerView and fill it with JSON data. We will use Volley to get the JSON response from a REST API and Picasso to load and display the images in our RecyclerView.

In part 1 we will focus on the preparations. We will choose a RESTful API (Pixabay) to get our data from, add all the dependencies, add the internet permission into our Manifest file and prepare our MainActivity layout.
