Support for TypeScript is currently limited to Visual Studio 2012, via a plugin, or the TypeScript Playground web-based editor.
The full slide deck is now available to view, download and/or modify.
The audience were predominantly C# developers, which should indicate the level of technical detail.
Hosting the TypeScript compiler
The presentation goes through how to host the compiler within an html page, or view the source of
assets/compiler.js for further details.

In my view, TypeScript is one of the more exciting technologies to be released by Microsoft in the recent years. I’m excited by this nascent language, currently at version 0.8, and the possibilities for its the future. The web-based editor shows great promise at this early stage; imagine an entire programming environment requiring no more than a browser.
