Hi Yaroslav,

no worries, this is a good question. It depends a bit on what kind of logic 
you want to trigger. If you just want to do something, you can use 
`mapMaterializedValue` to do something with the `OutgoingConnection` object 
before materialization is complete.

If you want to prepend some bytes to be output to the connection, you can 
do it like this:

  .prepend(Source.single(ByteString("hello connection"))) // or any other 
  .via(Tcp(system).outgoingConnection(???, ???))

More complex behavior can be built e.g. by wrapping the complete connection 
flow with a custom GraphStage that would be able to receive all kinds of
