No roadmap i.e. not a talk about what we MySQL engineers “plan” to do, just an “educational” and “how-to” and “hands on” (well, our hands will be on the keyboard) show of what you can do now if you take up the latest source.

Not a pure slide show, you’re looking over our shoulders while we use
utf32, use performance schema, use EXECUTE IMMEDIATE, use partitioning
with dates/characters, take advantage of visible performance improvements, and so on. We’ll take questions about anything that you could expect a MySQL Runtime Lead developer and a MySQL Lead Software Engineer / SQL Architect to know something about.
