Birmingham is such a beautiful city. It’s a place for foodies, craft beer connoisseurs, music fanatics, and, of course, outdoor enthusiasts. Unlike the amazing restaurants, music venues, and breweries, our green spaces depend on charitable contributions to keep their operations going. We at Airship indulge in the green spaces here in Birmingham quite often. Whether it’s mountain biking at Red Mountain, playing frisbee in Railroad Park, or enjoying the well-maintained trails at Ruffner Mountain, these spaces are vital to Birmingham. An important part of Airship's mission is finding ways to give back to our community. The release of iOS 10 and its ability to develop applications for the iOS 10 iMessage platform presented a unique opportunity for us to use our technology expertise to help raise money and awareness for the green space needs. The Magic City Sticker Pack is an excellent opportunity for Birmingham companies to give back to the community. Magic City Stickers showcases Birmingham’s amazing companies and landmarks and directly impacts the green spaces that we all know and love. Corporate contributions of $50 (or more) will feature your company's brand in the Magic City Sticker Pack and 100% of the proceeds will be donated equally to Red Mountain Park, Railroad Park, and Ruffner Mountain. Airship is extremely excited to be a part of corporate Birmingham and invite you all to take the opportunity to develop your brand awareness as you give back to our greens spaces. Be a part of an initiative designed to help our parks grow and keep Birmingham beautiful, just like its people and the companies they work for. Join us in helping continue making Birmingham a beautiful place by joining Magic City Stickers, and make sure to head to the iMessage App Store to download the sticker pack.

Ruffner Mountain

At 1,038 acres, Ruffner Mountain is one of the largest privately-held urban nature preserves in the United States. Originally founded in 1977, Ruffner's mission is to raise ecological awareness as Birmingham’s premier resource for urban nature education. Its storied lands—once mined and clear-cut—are now daily reclaimed and restored, as Ruffner continues its work to stitch the wounds of the land and community back together again. Today, Ruffner Mountain is once again home to a biodiverse population of flora and fauna, and each it is visited by over 100,000 guests for its beauty, its 14 miles of trails, and the best views in Birmingham.

Thank you!

To get started we needed some Birmingham companies to allow us to use their brands. We want to thank them for their support!

Start with: What problem are you trying to solve? 

One of the activities we work through revolves around refining your problem statement. A problem statement is the key business problem that needs to be solved. In software development, it states “what has to be done” for a project to succeed. It does not say, “how it has to be done.”

We use the 5W’s + 1 H format as well as the SMART Framework when establishing a problem statement. In fact, you can draft your own problem statement by using our free download. This download will get you thinking through some of the questions and answers prior to starting your project.
