Depends on how long he was trying to program the TPMS. With the engine not running and the ignition keys on, the day time running lights are on and the head lights are draining the battery. Next time your going to have the ignition keys on for a long period of time with out the engine running, set your parking brakes. Setting your parking brakes will keep your Day time running lights from coming on.
You may have received a faulty alternator from the store. I have bought alternators from AutoZone before and in one instance had to take it back 3 times before I got one that worked correctly.
Also, you should not have jumped the car, you should have started it up on battery and alternator. That would have told you if the battery was drained or the alternator you had just put in was bad. If you put the drained battery back in the car to run it, the car would have died anyway. Whenever I have changed an alternator out I always let it run in the driveway for awhile to make sure that both the battery and alternator are functioning correctly.
