New Lessons in this book are focused on the Arduino UNO working with MAX MSP and Jitter. Maxuino will be the new platform running through Standard Fermata.

I do not recommend the BS2 anymore given the high cost and the more open source nature of the Arduino. Arduino now has much code developed by the open source community, which makes it a superior product.
